Covers the elemental principles of writing that empower you to write as a way to explore your thinking. This book presents a problem-solution structure to show you what most guides only tell you. The principles are offered not as hard-and-fast rules, but as commonsense approaches to help you diagnose your own prose quickly and revise it effectively. Williams' book engages you in a conversation on writing and teaches you techniques that can help you write clearly--with grace and style.--from publisher's description.
