Time and again, I’ve written about written about ‘writing‘ on this blog, so much so that people have asked me if I’m a writing coach.
That is one career path towards which I have below zero interest, mostly stemming from the unspoken yet amply felt statement, “Those who can’t write, teach.”
Not true, I know, quite a few good writers are teachers.
But still, the only person I’ll ever teach is myself, and I have a lot to learn. I have recently been inspired by writers who have taught themselves to write, and though I’m very open to mentoring, I think self-teaching can have its own intrinsic worth, when it comes to writing.
I think that is one thing yours truly needs to teach herself: to take notes so that she would have something to fall back on, when her memory fails her.
