Writing Tools

I’m reading Writing Tools – 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer by Roy Peter Clark, at the moment. What a great book! I reckon my paperback will quickly become dog-eared through re-use.(ISBN: 978-0-316-01499-1)

I’d highly recommend it.

I don’t think I’ve been bookless since I was in elementary school.

Writing Short

Writing short. Consider the significance of the two-word sentence: I do.
