Read when you have 5-10 minutes (yea right!) to process --- content deserves your attention if your serious about writing - and of course, selling books.
My take-a-ways from Godin's remarks are below:
* You can write without becoming a monk, by bringing your voice to those that want to hear it.
* The process advice that makes sense to me is to write. Constantly. At length. Often. Don't publish everything you write, but the more you write, the more you have to choose from.
* ... my readers told me that more concrete examples and fewer footnotes were the way to go if I was intent on starting conversations and fostering positive change.
* The biggest take-away for anyone seeking to write is this: Don't go looking for the way other authors do their work. You won't find many who are consistent enough to copy, and there are enough variations in approach that it's obvious that it's not like hitting home runs or swinging a golf club. There isn't a standard approach, there's only what works for you (and what doesn't)
* You are my idea of a good writer because you have an un-mannered style, and when I read what you write, I hear you talking.
