William Zinsser's classic non-fiction guide
When I turned the last page of On Writing Well by William Zinsser, I obsessively kisses the book-an act of thankful worship that few scorn edifices in the Spotts collection do. The award was deserved by Interest-s unparalleled benefit to the writer who would be.
Many" experienced authors" have made it their business to sharpen our pens and showed themselves little more than grammarian or used the opportunity to show off their supersaturating styles and their awfully great humour - without saying anything about the real script. The biography of On World is as much about grammar as it is about biography. Tinnser illustrated his points with a detour into his story as a journalist for the Herald Tribune and with stories from his journeys around the world.
arrative side notes and unlikely trivialities give your fiction feelings of humanity, but also work underfoot. Conclusion: If you want to correct your fiction, let everything stand and stay at the foot of Zinsser for a while.
