I really admire Erik Stinson’s point of view, and we have similar professions. I mean, kind of. He’s a copywriter for a big agency (I’m assuming) in NYC and I’m a copywriter at a small healthcare company in Nashville. Ok, maybe not the same at all. Anyway, he’s written an ad and I’ve written an ad, which again means nothing. But, I mostly like his cultural explanations on HTMLGiant–I resonate with his explanations about advertising, culture, media and the Internet.
He’s written a couple of books, he’s sent them to me, I’ve read parts of them, which is basically what I can say for everyone who has sent me anything.
I reached out to him for the best and worst writing advice, this is what he sent (edited):
