Personal observation

August 18th, 2009 by Ken

I’m not a great writer, I’m not even sure I’m a good writer, but I know good writing when I read it, and two writers particularly have drawn my attention.

The first is Peggy Noonan who writes for The Wall Street Journal.  Peggy can take a complicated subject and make it easy for anyone to understand.  She writes like she’s speaking to someone on the street and I find her style to be interesting and informative.  She also has great insight into her subject.

The other is Chester Allen who writes a fishing column for The Olympian.  Chester can paint pictures with words.  When he writes about fishing, I can feel the warm breeze on my face, see the ripples in the water and smell the fresh dampness of the river. 

If you get a chance to read either of these two writers, take the time to enjoy the ideas and the pictures they paint.   It’s one of the beauties of the printed word.
