The more you write, the more you'll be able to write.

前のエントリーにも書いたが、現在、Joel on Softwareを読んでいる。Joelの文章能力が高いからだと思うが、Software開発の基本が優しく解説されている。小難しく書いてないから、頭にもスムーズに入ってくるし、1エントリーごと納得しながら読める。


Painless Functional Specifications – Part 1: Why Bother?

I think it’s because so many people don’t like to write. Staring at a blank screen is horribly frustrating. Personally, I overcame my fear of writing by taking a class in college that required a 3-5 page essay once a week. Writing is a muscle. The more you write, the more you’ll be able to write. If you need to write specs and you can’t, start a journal, create a weblog, take a creative writing class, or just write a nice letter to every relative and college roommate you’ve blown off for the last 4 years. Anything that involves putting words down on paper will improve your spec writing skills. If you’re a software development manager and the people who are supposed to be writing specs aren’t, send them off for one of those two week creative writing classes in the mountains.
