READ ↠ The Little Red Writing Book 20 Powerful Principles of Structure Style Readability Grammar His discussion centers on 20 immutable writing principles as well as 30 commonly encountered rules of grammar A wealth of examples charts and engaging exercises make The Little Red Writing Book an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to master those skills that will make a good writer even better. Before I was halfway through it I was thinking that the cleverest thing about The Little Red Writing Book was its title That s sadIt s also unfairAfter all I ve read a lot of books and articles and web pages whose authors could benefit greatly from some of what is in this compact collection of how to write From stylistic construction to rules of grammar Royal covers many areas where aspiring writers shouldn t but do have problemsThere were a couple places where I disagreed and there were a couple of mistakes I thought should have been caught in proofreading but on the whole it is solidI think my biggest issue is that the author misses a critical rule which ought to have been up front It is a rule I learned in music theory but have since applied to all creative endeavors The basic rule is that every rule exists for a reason to prevent an outcome viewed as a problem The importance of that rule is that if you know what the rule prevents you know when to break it to achieve a desired effectA glaring example is his assertion that when writing in support of a position you should always put your conclusion at the beginning I understand the reason In most situations it enables the reader to understand your arguments much readily because they already know where you are going The downside is that people who disagree with you are unlikely ever to read you arguments once they know that they disagree and you wind up preachin to the choir because the only readers you get are those who agree with your conclusion Thus when I wrote Confessions of a Dungeons Dragons Addict long ago and I wanted to capture an audience of people who had already decided that the game was an evil Satanic ritual I opened with and maintained the notion that there were problems with the game of which Christians should be aware so that I could draw them through all the supposed problems that actually were not problems with the game and reach the conclusion that Christians should be playing it Were I to have begun with the conclusion it is doubtful whether my target audience would have gotten past the first paragraphFailure to explain the reason for the rules within the context of what is achieved by breaking them weakens the value of the book significantlyHowever it does hit many of the typical mistakes writers make and most would probably find it useful Buried Mountain Secrets know what the rule prevents you The Deranged Cousins or Whatever know when to break it to achieve a desired effectA glaring example is his assertion that when writing in support of a position you should always put your conclusion at the beginning I understand the reason In most situations it enables the reader to understand your arguments much readily because they already Intuición know where you are going The downside is that people who disagree with you are unlikely ever to read you arguments once they How Money Became Dangerous know that they disagree and you wind up preachin to the choir because the only readers you get are those who agree with your conclusion Thus when I wrote Confessions of a Dungeons Dragons Addict long ago and I wanted to capture an audience of people who had already decided that the game was an evil Satanic ritual I opened with and maintained the notion that there were problems with the game of which Christians should be aware so that I could draw them through all the supposed problems that actually were not problems with the game and reach the conclusion that Christians should be playing it Were I to have begun with the conclusion it is doubtful whether my target audience would have gotten past the first paragraphFailure to explain the reason for the rules within the context of what is achieved by breaking them weakens the value of the book significantlyHowever it does hit many of the typical mistakes writers make and most would probably find it useful
