Replenish the Grammar and Style Well

We often hear that we should take time to refill the well. This metaphor speaks of a pause that allows us to reconnect with the source of our creativity.

But consider that we need to refill the well in other ways. Working on grammar and style is often just that: work. But, if you want to “work” as a writer, then you need to tune your process. Emitting words into a medium is not sufficient for most of us.

Consider a purchase of a style guide such as the classic “Elements of Style” by Strunk and White. Consider it a fine meal, and devour it slowly, over days and weeks, so that you may develop mastery in your craft.
