You can spot a mediocre writer from miles away …
Flat verbs. Obtuse nouns. Lame metaphors. Absence of stories. Rough Draft host Demian Farnworth should know. He used to be one.
In regard to the mediocre writers, it seems that they’d want an edge. That they’d kill to get their hands on words that crank out power like a Floyd Mayweather right hook.
That they’d do whatever they could. Even read unorthodox books.
