- If you write simply you cannot hide lack of ideas behind complicated words
- When you write about a subject you see your own gaps in knowledge
- Show, don’t tell
- Researchers tend to ask many questions at the beginning of a text
- Why am I the right person to tell this story
- Writing is the medium of research
Why write when we can let AI generate text?
- AI-generated content will flood the internet and will drown out any signal in an onslaught of noise
- Text-generating AI will highlight all the bullshit things we do when we work on computers
- PEEL structure for paragraphs
- Use goals that are within your control to reach
- To create great creative work, focus on process rather than output
- Writer’s block means that you dont have enough material to work with
- Use yourself as a proxy when writing. What you find interesting and weird will likely be entertaining to others too.
- Good writing has a ruthless focus on one specific purpose
- Apply Occam’s razor in writing
