Better Style in 10 Weeks
Also see Better Writing in Six Weeks.
If you are a busy
person who wants to make your writing more memorable and distinctive, this course is for you.
Lessons will be delivered to your inbox on Wednesdays. A nice
complement to my
monthly writing tips, each lesson requires
only 10 minutes of your time. Exercises with each lesson will help you
sharpen your skills and assess your progress, and review exercises will help you
remember what you've learned. With a little practice, you'll incorporate these helpful techniques into
your everyday writing.
Lesson 1: Turn nouns into verbs
Lesson 2: Don’t trust modifiers
Lesson 3: Use parallel structure to write with distinction
Lesson 4: Eliminate wordy references to time
Lesson 5: Add trailing elements
Lesson 6: Pause for emphasis
Lesson 7: Mind your closings
Lesson 8: End with the thought you intend to develop next
Lesson 9: Appeal to the senses
Lesson 10: Use ellipses to compress your sentence endings
All instruction and exercises are intended for you to work on independently. (In other words, your subscription does not include individual feedback or
review of your work.) So that you know if you are doing the exercises
correctly, I include answers to the exercises.
