Do you have a good idea that you just can't get across in writing? Ordinary miracles is an insightful exploration of the writing process as a medium for communication - rather than an exercise in stringing together words and sentences according to the rules of grammar. It begins by looking at the flawed system that most people use to evaluate writing, and then describes a better way to break down a text - COL (Content, Organization, Language), and examines each of these elements in detail. You will learn: - How the misinformation that you learned in grade school is affecting your writing today. - How to structure your writing to make a solid and compelling argument. - How grammar can be used for maximum effect, sometimes by breaking the rules! - How subtle differences in the way you structure your sentences can massively affect your readers. - How to choose just the right word to get your point across. This book will inspire you to write - bring your writing to the next level today!
