On Writing Well – Bryn Mawr College
On Writing Well has been praised for its sound advice, its clarity and the warmth of its style. It is a book for everybody who wants to learn how to write or who needs to do some writing to get through the day, as almost everybody does in the age of e-mail and the Internet.
Whether you want to write about people or places, science and technology, business, sports, the arts or about yourself in the increasingly popular memoir genre, On Writing Well offers you fundamental priciples as well as the insights of a distinguished writer and teacher. With more than a million copies sold, this volume has stood the test of time and remains a valuable resource for writers and would-be writers.
This book is one of the finest books ever written on the subject of nonfiction writing. I’ve written about 30 books that have sold more than five million copies and I can tell you that those books would never have been written, or written as well, had I not stumbled upon this book some 20 years ago.
From this book I learned the value of brevity. I learned the value of simplicity. And more than anything else, I learned to trust myself and the concept that, in the end, people don’t love a book because they are in love with the subject, they love a book (and stick with it regardless of topic) because they like the author. I also learned, very importantly, that your teachers were all wrong when they told you not to write in the first person: Mr. Zinsser convinced me that writing in the first person is the best–often the only–way to write.
If you don’t trust yourself and don’t trust your ideas, why on Earth are you writing anything?
I also learned from this book that humor and surprise are necessary elements of most nonfiction writing.
Be yourself, talk directly to the reader, be funny, be human, be a tiny bit clever–and you may even surprise yourself with what a good writer you are. Trust yourself, and trust simplicity.
