Tips for better writing

Here are a few more tips for becoming a better writer. Blogger even.

By the way, that blogger vs. writer thingy – Heather, who IS an excellent writer, has recently mentioned it.

Somehow this led into a discussion about what I do for a living, and I suddenly realized that I have a hard time telling people that I am a writer. I’m always saying that I have a website, or that I write things online, but I’m reluctant to use the word WRITER because when it comes out of my mouth it sounds like I’m pleading with someone to PLEASE TAKE ME SERIOUSLY. It also makes me sound like I’m fond of wearing fedoras and plaid capes. And beige orthopedic shoes that smell like cabbage.
