Tips on Writing the Living Web

I'm always interesting in reading about the process of writing. Particularly non-fiction. I've never been a big fiction reader, and when I write, I don't have enough imagination to make it up.

Once in a while, I'll pull out one of my favorite books on writing, read it, and get inspired to write again. Books like Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott, Writing to Learn or On Writing Well by William Zinsser, or almost anything by John McPhee. (The Control of Nature comes to mind.)

In that vein, Mark Bernstein has a wonderful essay called 10 Tips on Writing the Living Web. To be fair, it's not meant to be in the same league as the books, but it is inspiring around the topic of putting keyboard to editor. Nice work.
