Some things Tom Cox has learned about writing

Tom and The Bear

 

Tom Cox is creator of the wildly successful Twitter account about his 20-year-old poet/philosopher/cat called The Bear, as well as a long-time journalist for publications such as The Guardian and New Music Express, and author of several books, not all of them about his cats.

He has posted some thoughts about writing for a living to mark 20 years in the game, and I’ve reposted them on my business website (because there’s lots of gold there, and because it means I can post a pic of The Bear whom I love dearly). You might notice that Tom’s voice is contagious. And that’s a VERY GOOD THING, especially if it can’t quite rise to the standard of the original.

If you want more of Tom’s writing and his life with The Bear and Roscoe and his Dad and the rest of the crew, go to his website, Tom Cox, and to follow The Bear on Twitter, go to @MYSADCAT.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s Tom on writing (my favourite point is the penultimate one: The longer you go on writing, the more “improving” becomes knowing what to leave out) … Some things Tom Cox has learned about writing
