Default Writing Tips from Legendary Writer William Zinsser

I came across a wonderful article outlining the top ten writing tips from legendary writer William Zinsser (author of On Writing Well). I have included two of the tips below which I believe are highly applicable to residency personal statements. A link to the full article is found below.

“Sell yourself, and your subject will exert its own appeal. Believe in your own identity and your own opinions..."

"Read everything you write out loud for rhythm and sound: Good writers of prose must be part poet, always listening to what they write.” (I cannot overemphasize the importance of this second point.)

Best of luck to all applying. Feel free to reach out to discuss your personal statement.
