FROM THE INTRODUCTION:''I have developed a rigorous writing method over the course of the years. I have benefited from such texts as Natalie Goldbergs Writing Down the Bones, Annie Dillards A Writing Life, and Ann LaMotts Bird by Bird --- and even Stephen Kings notorious How to Write. In the process of reading these books, I have come to a number of profound conclusions concerning the art of writing --- which mostly serve as practical suggestions for the writing seeker. One of these concerns the importance of the title of a work, and others relate to the specifically existential craft of producing writing. This text includes my best tips on writing, tips I have already used to influence nascient writers on the web.''
