Do you consider yourself articulate or good with words?
I'm aspiring to be someone like Anne Lebowitz but haven't really reached there yet.
You mean Fran Lebowitz? Annie Leibovitz is the photographer.
O god OP. Seven words in and you failed.
Sorry OP that was mean of me.
I have been told by others that I write well, but it doesn't come easy. Like Ms Parker, I sweat a postcard. It takes me a while, a lot of re-writing, a lot of tweaking before I get it to where I want it to be. If I wrote more often, I probably could do it faster and with less effort. A friend of mine who is a rather successful author told me the best way to improve your writing is to read...lots. Read everything. Fiction, non fiction, literature, ad copy, comic books, sci-fi. Everything. He singled out The New Yorker as a good source for different kinds of material.
