A good writer

“To be a good writer, regardless of genre, is to wage a similar war against clutter. A writer’s job is to distill a lot of stuff down to its most potent elements. You have to edit out the noise that rattles through and complicates life in order to find some piece of truth that you then put down on a page and share with the reader. A good writer becomes an expert at separating what they want to write and what they need to write, occasionally stripping away beautiful sentences with a ruthless tenacity if those sentences aren’t a good fit for the piece.”

– Cord Jefferson
