Effective Writing

Found Jeremy Stell-Smith's Effective Writing a very useful guide from a TDD developer’s point of view on getting things done – without being distracted or going deviation in the writing.

I still got a few travel essays pending – ‘todo’ since July - seem very daunting task, considering it is a part-time hobbits thing. In the running up to the New Year, I am going to try to apply these principles.

  • Work top down – do outline first
  • Question Driven Writing – compare that to test driven development to stay on topic.
  • Work in Sprints - cutting off the distraction and shut yourself down to external.
