Andrée Seu on Writing

A few years ago World Magazine ran a wonderful little article by Andrée Seu with good counsel on writing. I'm glad to see it's now reprinted on Boundless.

Here's the opening paragraph:
The biggest help to my writing has been the discipline of having to fit everything into 800 words. That's on the "craft" side. On the "inspiration" side it's the daily reading of Scripture. The World Journalism Institute gave me three hours to tell students in Asheville how I write, but I had only those two points, really. WJI could have saved itself a little money.
Read the whole thing.
