Here’s the second part of John’s little talk on writing, date and place of delivery unknown.  He was, by the way, influenced by Jack Woodford’s 1933 book Trial and Error, a blunt, unsentimental guide to commercial writing.  He once told me it had saved him a lot of time.

I always enjoy reading what John had to say about writing.  Here’s a short talk he gave on the subject; it seems to be from the ’50s.  I’ll give half of it here; the second half will follow.
