The Writer's Diet
Is your writing flabby or fit?
The Writer's Diet will help you energise your writing, boost your verbal fitness levels and strip unnecessary padding from your prose.
In contrast to most other writing and editing guides, The Writer’s Diet offers no ‘big picture’ advice on argument or audience, no instruction on composition or paragraph structure, no primer on grammar and punctuation. Instead, this book zeroes in on five common problems that frequently plague unfit sentences - weakness and excess in verbs, nouns, prepositions, adjectives/adverbs, and ‘waste words’.
Writers at every level, from students to professionals, will benefit from The Writer’s Diet workout and enjoy the experience. Before long, you will find yourself producing stylish, energetic prose every time you put pen to paper.
