Book Review: Writing Tools

Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every WriterWriting Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer by Roy Peter Clark
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. Clark gives the writer a toolbox of ideas that range from how to arrange sentences to foreshadowing to working with an editor. All the chapters are short with questions at the end to spur further thought. He arranges the material well so the reader can easily reference a portion of the book later. He demystifies the writing process, as well. The reader leaves believing that he can write well if he takes the time and uses the right tools. Writing tools is an excellent resource for anyone who aspires to write well.

Great recommendation! That was a very helpful book.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
