- How following the story thread is better than "encyclopedia" fact writing.
- How to solve most comma problems without grammar rules.
- How to write with verbs instead of nouns to perk up your prose.
- Numerous other techniques that make sense.
This book contrasts with much of today's teaching on how to write, which is ineffective and deadening to students. Here we explain the historical roots of that old system so you can confidently move to the meaning system. A bonus chapter gives a history of how English language came to us.
