What Lawyers Can Learn from Writers


What can lawyers learn from writers? I think there are many things, I want to go over just a few.

This past weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I went to the DFW Writers Conference. The actual conference was Saturday and Sunday, but I went to the pre-conference workshops because I wanted to learn as much as was made available. Here is a description of one of the two pre-conference workshops I attended:

Donald Maass: Writing 21st Century Fiction

Based on his popular book of the same name (September 2012, Writer’s Digest) , New York agent Donald Maass will teach participants the techniques that give multi-year best selling novels their high impact, resulting in both strong stories and beautiful beautiful writing regardless of category. This is an intensive, hands-on workshop for advanced fiction writers.
