Dr. JAC's Guide to Writing with Depthby Joyce Armstrong Carroll
For those who write, for those who want to write, and for those who teach writing – for the neophyte and for the professional – this book delivers. Joyce Armstrong Carroll's Dr. JAC's Guide to Writing with Depth takes up where other writing guides leave off. The strategies for writing with depth as well as tips on ways to deepen writing would be book enough, but Carroll provides depth herself by offering models from literature – children's, the classics, and contemporary – to support her advice. Clearly, good writers use the techniques she suggests. This book will remind you of the importance of crafting your writing. And, it is well written. Drawing upon almost half a century of writing, studying writing, and teaching writing, Carroll sprinkles her text with personal anecdotes, much research, suggested books, and lines that stick in the brain. "Repetition is the drum of remembering." Each piece of advice is conveyed in brisk but clear prose and is followed by an "Application" so that you can immediately try the suggestion. All writers need this book on their reference shelves, and all teachers of writing need this book in their professional libraries.
