- Tom Clancy, Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain and Satchel Paige -- they were all writers (of sorts). And they have all made it into this first volume of The Writing Wright.
If you are fascinated by writers and writing, The Writing Wright offers a box of chocolates you can’t refuse. The book sprinkled quotations and stories from many writers along with my own insight, instruction and commentary. Here you’ll find:
• Mark Twain’s critique of the writing for James Fenimore Cooper
• Ernest Hemingway’s attitude toward punctuation
• How expensive a misspelling can be
• Down-to-earth instruction on the glue of writing
• When Tom Clancy learned about submarines
• What Satchel Paige said about braggin’
• What H.L. Mencken thought about being a reporter
And much more.
The book contains many of my own illustrations. My hope for The Writing Wright is that it will draw you in and teach you something about writing – lessons you can learn over and over.
The price is $10.
