In Public Speaking, First Break All the Rules of Writing

24 Jan

1) “Don’t give your opinion.” Write from the gut.

2) writing is about personality.

3) write like you talk.

4) Give up on formality….write from the heart. (especially for earlier drafts).

5) Write to be felt and understood.

6) Be honest, but use a degree of hyperbole for emphasis. (Artistic license)

7) Tell stories. Paint pictures. Give details.

* Thats the name of a book (First Break All the Rules), but also a colloqialism so I feel justified in using it.
