Timeless writing advice from Don Ranly
Years ago, I met the famous (in communications circles) Don Ranly, Ph.D., IABC Fellow and professor emeritus of the Missouri School of Journalism.
We had coffee at an IABC World Conference, where he was speaking – probably on Refrigerator Journalism. That was his term for presenting useful information readers could and would clip and pin on refrigerators or bulletin boards.
My latest blog post shares some of Don’s own pinnable advice about writing. Here's one in particular I try to follow: “Find a problem (issue, product, idea), but don’t write about the problem. Find a person who is dealing with the problem, and tell us how he or she is doing.”
Are you Don Ranly fan too? What advice of his speaks to you? Do stop by and share in the comments, or hit “reply’ and let me know.
As always, thanks for reading.
