Becoming a Good Writer

Hi Brooke! I enjoyed hearing you talk about how your writing “voice” has changed over time. When it comes to productivity I notice that writing takes me much longer than I’d like. I tend to write slowly and rewrite, even when it comes to a short email. I think the issue is that I don’t feel happy with my natural voice – if I write quickly (B- work) it reads as being awkward/formal/lacking confidence or clarity and I don’t like it.

Ironically I was an English major, but I read such a lot of old literature and wrote mostly academic essays. Writing in a modern conversational way doesn’t come easily.

I feel you’ve grown to be such a confident writer. I wonder if you had any tips or suggestions on how I could become better and faster.

Are there any resources you’d recommend for learning to write good copy?

Thank you so much!
