I posted awhile ago about how I was trying to figure out what good writing is. Here are some more of my thoughts…
A good friend of mine also on tumblr replied to my post and told me (in short) that he thinks that good writing depends on what the piece is trying to accomplish. So, I think I want to take an angle on my favorite type of writing: thoughtful but entertaining speculative fiction.

I don’t know what it means…
This is something I always wanted to talk about on my blog for a long time, but it never really felt right for one reason or another, or I just never had a good reason to do so.
I’m going to start off by going into what I think GOOD WRITING ACTUALLY IS. And for most writers, I imagine that is a bit of a tricky question.
First off, I agree with my first creative writing teacher in college who said GOOD WRITING IS REWRITING. But that didn’t satisfy me. I don’t think it satisfies many writers, especially not the aspiring ones.
So, now that school has started this week for BYU-Idaho (much later than most schools) I am going to use my blog that happens to already loosely be about writing as part of my homework.
Here’s the deal, I have to write about “exploring, drafting, revising and/or writing about writing.” I have been thinking mostly on the last of these options, because I think maybe some of my writing experiences can help other people, or you lovely people can give me some writing advice I had not considered.
I do not plan to be overbearing with this, so I don’t want to scare anyone away, but I will be posting more than usual. Anyway, have good days, everyone.
I don’t know, kids, I ask myself these questions every day.
