Writing that Works

at Amazon


“The only way some people know you is through your writing.”

“Your reader does not have much time. If you want to hold the attention of busy people, your writing must cut through to the heart of the matter.”

“Good writing speeds things up.”

These 3 excerpts are from my 1981 copy of “Writing that Works” by Kenneth Roman and Joel Raphaelson. I’ve just read it. It’s probably even more relevant now than in 1981.

If you write, read this: “40 One-Sentence Writing Tips”. The ones I most liked: “11. ‘Wow, that had great grammar,’ said nobody ever.” and “39. The secret to writing is a paradox: Confine your ideas to a box in which anything is possible.”
