This book is unique in the sense that he presents notable writing snippets from the best writers of our time, making this book not only informative but also very entertaining.
Writing Tip: To improve how you approach writing, you could benefit from copying some of the sentences that you enjoyed reading. What I do is, I copy some of these sentences and rewrite them on a daily basis, this is a copywriting practice technique that copywriters use to build their craft. It works because by writing the sentences down you're reinforcing the sentence formation and structure patterns from other amazing writers. Studies, such as the Pam Mueller and Daniel Oppenheimer research (Scientific America has a great article on this) on longhand note taking vesus typing show that writing information down improves information retention (among other things). Additionally, if you think of this as a concept, this approach is analogous to how a business can get better results by analyzing innovative sales models from other companies and from understanding it they can appropriately modify their sales system/model. Similar, from practicing this technique you're mentally modeling out what a great sentence look and feel like, I guarantee writing will get more fun and become effortless the more you practice!
Writing Tools is a priceless and life changing writing course in itself, pick it up and you won't regret it.
I sort of gave up.
I'm not complaining. But let's face it. Writing is one thing, teaching writing is something else. The two don't necessarily intersect. Just because someone's a good writer, doesn't mean he or she can identify or explain what makes his work stand out.
I'd grown confused. The only reason I subjected myself to all this torture was because I knew I had to become better at writing. It seemed like if I wanted to get better, I was just going to have to shell out the money to go back to school.
Then, I got a new cellphone and happened upon a podcast of WRITING TOOLS.
Roy Peter Clark, a seasoned journalist and teacher at the Poynter Institute, put together this collection of "50 essential strategies" for EVERY WRITER.
WRITING TOOLS will help anyone write better. The book is loaded with tips and ideas that'll help journalists, novelists, and bloggers.
I started applying number one, and saw improvement right away. Taken one at a time, most writers can sharpen their skills dramatically in only a few months.
In the book, each tip has its own section. So if you only have the podcasts, you're missing out.
Clark is a master writer himself with a forte for helping others understand HOW to develop their craft: structure, preparation, voice ... these subjects and 47 more are handled concisely.
Writing Tools is a MUST HAVE for the library of any serious writer.
I'm loving the "Writing Tools" by Peter Clark. As I read each chapter, I scrutinize my own writing projects and follow the wonderful lessons he gives. I tighten where needed, activate my verbs, eliminate most adverbs - words ending in 'ly', and 'ing' words for stronger writing. I write a long sentence just for fun, and I write toward the perfect ending. Clark uses a writer-friendly style and makes learning the secrets of the trade like finding treasure in a field.
Review by: Rita Kroon, author of two novels, three devotionals, a women's Bible study, a memoir, and two inspirational books.
