Working It Out, Second Edition, is an easy-to-use guide that helps people write better by helping them discover writing procedures that work well.

In its new edition, Working It Out builds on the success of the first edition by adding over two dozen new strategies, new material on common myths about writing, information on what to do if your draft is too long, and an expanded discussion of punctuation.
