There are about 100 ways to become a better writer. For example, you could:
- Read 100 books
- Listen to Ira Glass’s This American Life
- Cultivate a sick sense of humor
- Think like a psychologist
- Rack up rejections
- Write like mad
But did you know catching hell can help you sharpen your copy chops, too? Yep. Starting a little controversy can do that.
Rocking the boat forces you to defend your ideas, examine what you can stomach, stretch your world, and test the waters.
Let’s explore these ideas.
In this 6-minute episode of Rough Draft with Demian Farnworth, you’ll discover:
- The unique role critics play in a writer’s life (hint: you are fortunate if you have critics)
- What people who don’t like conflict need to know about controversy
- The one thing you can’t do as an online writer (ever)
