Writing # Links and resources # Paul Graham on how to write usefully. George Saunders on the process of writing a novel. Nick Parker on the “list of fish” sanity check for good writing (which is actually a quote from a Derren Brown book - don’t think I ever expected to be quoting Derren Brown), something that I often think about when I write on this website. Tony Ballantyne with lots of practical writing tips (in emacs of course). Henrik Karlsson on how writing blog posts is like writing a very finely tuned query to bring out the niche audience you’d like to interact with.
