I have had this article and it's PART 2 article in Hard Copy in a box since I first read it in 1993 in LA Weekly.

I will say it is ONLY Superlative. Many people have agreed with me that it is one of the absolute best articles about writing they have ever read.

It is called, "The Talent of the Room." stumbled upon it while looking for something else. Maybe Part 2 is also on the internet. Do a search.

It is a must read. IT IS A MUST READ.

THE TALENT OF THE ROOM

BY

MICHAEL VENTURA

As one of my teachers once said about becoming a Scholar: "The only way to become a Scholar is many hours of Soft Ass in contact with Hard Seat."

Same about writing, I suppose.

Have at it.

By the way, I have changed the link. It seems the one I originally posted would not directly connect to the pdf file. Now, this will take you to the Author's page and you will then have to click on the pdf file.

Best,
