Sit Write Share

Practical Writing Strategies to Transform Your Experience into Content that Matters

From the Foreword by Jane E. Scott

By this point I had fallen under the spell of Sit Write Share. I was looking at my problems not as personal failings but as glitches needing a fix. I had tried a few experiments and been encouraged by the results. I knew it would take time and practice to drop old habits, but I could feel stiff muscles beginning to yield. After all, if something you’re doing isn’t working, there’s no reason to keep doing it.

Sit Write Share is a book of experiments to help you build a deliberate writing practice by adopting an experimental mindset. Each experiment has worked for some of the writers I’ve known, but none of them work for all writers all of the time.

How do you figure out what to do next?  To answer that, I provide a supporting workbook to be a navigation guide.  It asks you to evaluate statements about your writing, and then suggests certain experiments based on your answers.
