Using Samurai Techniques in Writing

I wrote Fighting to Win: Samurai Techniques for Your Work and Life with the understanding that people in many different fields would be able to apply the ancient wisdom in it to their work and personal lives. Since many of you reading my blog are writers, I thought you might be interested in how an American writer and blogger who writes a really interesting, well-written blog,  Janet’s Writing Bloghas done just that. Here is her post on her experience with Fighting to Win.

Based on the title alone, I doubt that I would have considered reading Fighting to Win: Samurai Techniques For Your Work and Life, by David J. Rogers. After all, what could I possibly learn from Samurai Techniques that I could apply to my life at my age? I follow David J. Rogers’s blog and he […]

        • Well,I am very happy I found both of you.I began writing when I was the age she is now so she was pleased about that.I believe if you want to do something do it,even if you are not very good at it.I have a big vocabulary as I was a mathematician but always read a lot of novels and biographies and poetry.It’s hard teaching maths when students are afraid of it.Though many did well.ATB Katherine

          I like your attitude of taking a stab at things though at present you have no expertise in them. I have talked with a mathematician about the fear of math I had as a child and decide that my problem was that I had no larger concept of math. But math is nowhere in my life now.

      Dear Katherine. I like your analysis here very much. Because I have so little talent in drawing, I’m not inclined to do it to break from writing. I recently did a watercolor that I’ve been told is pretty good, so that offers me some encouragement. I very much like your idea that drawing sharpens your perception of color and shapes and beauty. I do appreciate your taking the time to write these comments which I always enjoy and which always add something to my post. Have a good night.
