Traits of Good Writers

Five common traits of good writers: (1) They have something to say. (2) They read widely and have done so since childhood. (3) They possess what Isaac Asimov calls a "capacity for clear thought," able to go from point to point in an orderly sequence. (4) They're good at putting their emotions into words. (5) They possess an insatiable curiosity, constantly asking Why and How.

James J. Kilpatrick (1920-2010) American journalist, columnist, author
