  • Sept 09 - Quinn Norton - How to Open a Vein

    1. 1. “It is with no small amount of trepidation that I take my place behind this desk, and face this learned audience.”
    2. 2. "There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein." - Red Smith
    3. 3. “If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad.”
    4. 4. Meet the Enemy:
    5. 5. Twas brillig, and the slithy toves. Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.
    6. 6. Things that will make your writing flat • wanting to be safe, liked. • wanting to be admired. • wanting to be popular. • wanting to be good. • wanting to please your audience.
