Writing Pro Tip #1

January 31, 2013

If you don’t have shit to say, just use a superlative adjective. Better yet, use a bunch of superlative adjectives:

Wonderful. Beautiful. Amazing. Gorgeous. Marvelous. Magnificent. Superb. Glorious. Sublime. Lovely. Delightful. Orgasmic.

(Update: wow, another 32-word masterpiece from when I was 25 or something. Anyway, here are some books about writing you might like.)

(Also: Maybe the word “superlative” isn’t used quite correctly here. I should probably call them extreme adjectives.)

(And finally: I’m a professional writer now. You might like my book about how to make money from your blog, fire your boss and live the good life. It’s here: getbook.at/zen)
