The revival of the Argenta blog prompted discussions about writing.  Hugh MacLeod ‘s very timely post reminded us that good writing is difficult, regardless of the medium.

For me, far and away the best book on writing is Weinberg on Writing: The Fieldstone Method . Jerry Weinberg is “Dedicated to Helping Smart People be Happy”. He has incurable cancer, and this post is an opportunity to thank him for the inspiration he continues to provide.
His blog on writing is http://weinbergonwriting.blogspot.com/
His blog on consulting is http://secretsofconsulting.blogspot.com/

I haven’t read his fiction yet, but his technical books are life-changing.

On a lighter note, Chris Clarke has written a priceless guide to writing an incendiary blog post, and Nicholas Carr has belatedly discovered that blogging is no longer cool, and makes a great pastime for the elderly.
