The next three posts will highlight books that have helped me during the process of composing my first novel.
I will begin with “On Writing Well” by William Zinsser, and oldie but goodie that is as relevant today as it was in 1976 when it was first published.
Although Zinsser’s book is a guide to writing nonfiction, his principles can help the fiction writer achieve a more succinct and clean prose that is both practical and colorful.
Zinsser is a master at uncluttering prose. And he teaches how to distill the writer’s message to its purest form.
