Summary
Writing coach Jack Hart breaks down the writing process into a series of manageable steps, from idea to polishing. Filled with real-world examples, both good and bad, Wordcraft shows how to bring such characteristics as force, brevity, clarity, rhythm, and color to any kind of writing. -- Adapted from Amazon.com summary"Originally published in 2006 as A Writer's Coach, the book has been updated to address the needs of contemporary writers well beyond print journalists. It retains the structure of the original, beginning by breaking down the writing process into a series of manageable stages-from idea to polishing-each of which is crucial to the next. While emphasizing the importance of the early stages, including information gathering and organizing, Hart also delves deeply into the elusive characteristics achieved through polishing, such as force, clarity, rhythm, color, and voice. Each chapter is filled with real examples, both good and bad, of these attributes. The book concludes with updated advice and resources for mastering the craft of writing. With these revisions, Wordcraft now functions as a set with the new edition of Hart's book Storycraft, on the art of storytelling, as the author always intended"-- Provided by publisher
