“This is boring, but the greatest thing for me — and I see this with young writers sometimes, that they don't have — is I had to write constantly. It was very good on a sentence-by-sentence level and at establishing voice. Most of voice is just a series of crutches applied regularly, and when you're writing eight-12 posts a day, you really double down on that. What I see with young writers now is that they don't have these horrible blogging jobs — which is for the best, probably — but they also are hesitant. Their voices aren't fully developed. They aren't put on the spot so they don't develop as quickly, probably.”
