what you don't know about what you do know

Why former editor William Rosen chose the 6th century as the subject of his first book :

“The best writerly advice I ever heard (and with which I bored dozens of authors back when I was an editor) is not to write what you know, but to write what you don’t know about what you do know. When I started on this project, I knew a fair bit about European and Mediterranean history, but not much about Late antiquity.”

    Hey man, long time reader and fellow Libertarian/Minarchist/AnCap blogger here.

    Wanted to send you a personal invite to a new liberty activist website.

    Since Bureaucrash Social has been overrun by NeoCons, Pete Eyre and a bunch of the other true libertarians have founded FR33 Agents.

    Here’s a link, I encourage you to check it out.
