What Makes a Good Writer? (Video)

How do you define a "good writer"? It's a question I'm often asked in interviews and by coaching clients, and there are probably as many definitions as there are definers.

Is being a good writer about your content? About your process? Or is it about surrendering to the Muse Stream and letting your story have its way with you? Watch the video below for my answer.

• For more videos about writing and the creative process, visit my YouTube page.

• You'll find additional tips and inspiration on my web site, where you can read my "Rules for Writing," sign up for my mailing list and read/hear free excerpts from The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write.

Buy The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write and The Voice of the Muse Companion: Guided Meditations for Writers from my online bookstore, and be sure to ask for a signed copy of the book. Both are also available on Amazon
