Good advice on writing : writers past and present on how to write well ( Book )
8 editions published between 1982 and 1993 in English and held by 1,452 libraries worldwide
This volume contains a collection of wise and witty words from famous authors from Aristotle to Zinsser, who comment succinctly and cogently on elements of writing -- from "Accuracy" ("One should always aim at being interesting rather than exact"--Voltaire) to "Writer's Block" (see "Doggedness"). The reader/writer can find solid advice (not surprisingly often contradictory), humor, and inspiration on each page. Now, what to write? Look under "Subject" and find E.B. White's recommendation: "A writer should concern himself with whatever absorbs his fancy, stirs his heart, and unlimbers his typewriter."
