From time to time I
vent document my frustrations with my writing by writing a piece about my problems. Sometimes these are useful for others, some not so, but help me get over my immediate writer’s block.
I also tend to think of every problem from a product perspective, so some of these are concerned with the presentation of my thoughts and articles rather than the content. In other words, some of these are focused on how the article or blog itself is laid out and presented while a few ( very few ) are about the practice of writing itself.
Here they are then, I’ve segregated them into 2 main groups, viz. Writing and Blogging. Note that I consider Blogging as a sub-category of Writing, so some of the contents of one are possibly equally applicable to the other.
