We here at Rite Gud work very hard to create thoughtful dialogues designed to help our listeners write good. But, there are many writing advice columns that won’t help you write good—that will actually encourage you to write bad, or at best mediocre. There’s a lot of money and clout to be made giving writing advice, and a lot of conventional wisdom, but how much of that is really helpful, and how much of it can steer a fledgling writer in the wrong direction?
In this episode, we question some classic writing advice, pick apart bad suggestions from good writers, and even venture into the wasteland that is Chuck Wendig.
