How to Become an Exceptional Writer

This article is well worth a read. Written by Demian Farnworth …

A man and boy sit in an old house crowded with furniture, sunlight and dust.

The man stomps his foot on the hard-wood floor. He’s wearing a white shirt, black jacket and black derby hat.

The boy is wearing the identical outfit. A guitar rests on his tiny knee. Tiny fingers grip the strings. Tiny fingers pluck the strings.

The man is nodding, rocking as the boy plays.

The man is Jack White — of The White Stripes, The Ranconteurs and Dead Weather fame.

The boy is his son.

Jack White is one of our best living guitarists. And he is teaching his son how to play.

This scene is part of the documentary It Might Get Loud. Jack White is the youngest of three generations of guitarists showcased.

Jimmy Page and The Edge are the other two. It doesn’t matter. The best part of this film happens in this old house crowded with furniture, sunlight and dust.

It happens when Jack White is teaching his son how to play his guitar. It happens when Jack White says, “You have to fight the guitar …”

“And you have to win.”

Some of the best writing advice … ever
