On Writing

There’s a lot on this blog about writing but these are the three most important series of posts I’ve done.

The Audience
The Story
Enrichment
Respect

Writing Men

A set of posts about men and the art of writing them.

Introduction
Objectivity
Axioms
Compartmentalization
Testing
Sacrifice
Solitude
