words to write by
write badly to write well

Words to Write By: Putting Your Thoughts on Paper, grew from the comments of
several very smart people who maintained they, "Could not write." After
working with them, I concluded they knew their technical subjects well, but
were not comfortable writing about them. Think about it. You don't play an
instrument perfectly the first time, and you definitely don't speak a new
language well until you speak it badly for a while.
Part discussion, part workbook, Words to Write By urges you to practice by
writing about something you know well. That takes away the fear of writing to
please a boss or impress an audience.
Words to Write By was written in 1995,
went into hiatus, and has been an ebook since 2010. It is now in paperback. You
can read it in a short time and get to work honing your skills.
