A book that really touches the heart and soul of any person who truly feels writing is their ultimate creative expression.,
This review is from: Writing With Power: Techniques for Mastering the Writing Process (Paperback)
The cover of this book doesn't do it justice. You would think as i did - this looks too formal and overly technical. However, as any good writer knows, one shouldn't be too infuenced by outwood appearances.
When you start reading this book it is immediate that this author knows what he is talking about. This author does not want you to believe all the stuff you've been told over the years. He takes a fresh approach, an approach that can easily be related to in all who read it. The sort of 'mad professor' angle.
Being as he is experienced in the teaching of good writing he has the fortune of examples to draw back on. This gives his examination and writing a human touch. One that is blessed with true life experiences which can instantly relate to you and me the reality of writing for real. The reality of writing not because you feel obliged (as if you are writing an essay) but simply because you love the process, creative expression and finished product of writing.
