Writing: Plain & Simple

by George Wilhite
 

"Writing is NOT some God-given gift to a few exceptionally intelligent human beings. Writing is a process, and like all processes, there are steps and techniques that can help you learn it. By breaking the process down into simpler, more understandable steps, you can get a better idea of what is expected at each step. It's like trying to eat a sixteen-ounce steak.

Overview

"Writing is NOT some God-given gift to a few exceptionally intelligent human beings. Writing is a process, and like all processes, there are steps and techniques that can help you learn it. By breaking the process down into simpler, more understandable steps, you can get a better idea of what is expected at each step. It's like trying to eat a sixteen-ounce steak. If you try to eat it in one big bite, you will probably choke. However, if you cut that steak up into manageable bites, it is much easier to eat. With writing, if you look at an essay as a whole and think you can't do it, you will get stressed. Get rid of that stress by learning to see the essay (or even a paragraph) as a series of simple steps, each one by itself easy to master."

Written in an accessible, easy to understand style, Writing: Plain & Simple demystifies the writing process so that students not only learn how to write a college essay now, but will have the skills necessary for their writing in the future.

Features include:

Units in the book cover the entire writing process from prewriting to writing and revision

Additional topics covered include types of persuasion, achieving coherence, and responding effectively to writing prompts

Appendices with a revision checklist, comma rules, and more
