On Writing Badly

I'm slowly teaching myself to do the kind of writing that selling an ebook needs.

It strikes me that I actually dislike what most people have to say, in most situations, most of the time, verbally and in print.

Which would explain why, when I write naturally, they usually seem to feel similarly about me.

Okay. That's not a "fix everything" solution or anything, but it's probably a better assumption to start from when I sit down to write. I think it even gives me some partial solutions, if I squint sideways at it.

Good. I can do that.
