In chapter 4 of “Coaching Writers,” Clark and Fry list traits of good writers with the techniques an editor can use to get the best from writers. What traits do you share with good writers, or what positive traits do you have that aren’t listed? What negative traits do you have as a writer?
(These traits are different from our idiosyncrasies, which act to put us in the proper frame of mind to be creative.)
Let’s keep these brief: three grafs tops. Be sure to comment on others’ posts, too, in addition to posting your own response.
