Product description

From the Back Cover

Get it written right now with this unique guide to solving the most common problems of crafting nonfiction writing

Contrary to popular belief, good writers are made, not just born. You don’t have to be the child of literary geniuses to write powerfully--you only need to learn the right strategies. In 265 Troubleshooting Strategies for Writers, seasoned writing instructor Barbara Fine Clouse shows you how.

Clouse breaks down the process of writing any piece of nonfiction--from the creative personal essay to the business letter--into four tasks: prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing. With her friendly style, she leads you through each step, providing you with surefire problem-solving strategies and time-savers.

Loaded with proven techniques for breaking through writer’s block, powerful strategies for generating fresh ideas, and abundant tips and tricks, this guide will help you:

  • Uncover five myths about writing that are probably holding you back
  • Break through writer’s block
  • Discover ideas for your writing
  • Organize your ideas effectively
  • Express yourself with precision and style
  • Polish your editing skills to clean up common style and grammar errors
  • Discover your own personal writing process

Pinpointing the challenges that arise at every stage of writing, this book gives you the tools you need to tackle any problem--from the blank page all the way to the finished product.

Barbara Fine Clouse is a longtime college composition instructor who currently conducts how-to workshops for writing teachers. Her many books include The Student Writer: Editor and Critic, Jumpstart!
