Beyond the book Revising Prose (highly recommended) I’ve spent about no time learning what “good writing” is. It wasn’t until maybe my mid-twenties I realized “Oh, people…they go to school for, or they study this?” (Journalism is an exception due to ethics and legalese.) I got maybe a third of the way into On Writing Well and stopped.

Other mailbags can be found here. Keep in mind a lot of this is email conversations, comment replies, or some random interesting things I’ve found.

I came across three separate articles in the same day going over small business statistics. One of them was from Dave Tate, over at EliteFTS. Dave owns EliteFTS, whose primary business is selling fitness equipment. He stated in a recent article: “It has been said that 90% of all small businesses will fail within the first […]
