In this wickedly humorous manual, language columnist June Casagrande uses grammar and syntax to show exactly what makes some sentences greatâ€”and other sentences suck.
Great writing isnâ€™t born, itâ€™s builtâ€”sentence by sentence. But too many writersâ€”and writing guidesâ€”overlook this most important unit. The result? Manuscripts that will never be published and writing careers that will never begin.
With chapters on â€śConjunctions That Killâ€ť and â€śWords Gone Wild,â€ť this lighthearted guide is perfect for anyone whoâ€™s dead serious about writing, from aspiring novelists to nonfiction writers, conscientious students to cheeky literati. So roll up your sleeves and prepare to craft one bold, effective sentence after another. Your readers will thank you.
