Each One Teach One

eachone Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw penned “He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.” Was he right? Are coaches washed up athletes who didn’t make it? Perhaps all the self help gurus have all the knowledge but not enough ambition to achieve their dreams?

But wait a minute. There are the Pat Rileys, and Phil Jacksons, the Warren Buffets, the master mason and the apprentice. Either Shaw was wrong or there must be exceptions to this rule. It may be possible to master a skill and share those same methods and techniques with others. Is writing one of those skills that can be taught?

A quick google search for writing help literally yields millions of results. There are many self proclaimed gurus ready to sell you their “secrets” to success. Of course, these gurus charge a hefty fee. For a new writer the publishing world may seem like Goliath. Spending wads of cash to learn a craft might seem rational. It is not. Writing is indeed a craft. Is it possible for someone who was once unpublished, like yourself, to teach you the craft? The answer is debatable. But writer Julia Cameron offers new comers something special in her book “The Right to Write”.
