Summary

Cheeky, original, and decidedly practical to boot, Sin Boldly! is unlike any other writing handbook available. Jammed with sage advice, genuine encouragement, and surprising examples (of how to write and how not to write), this book gives beginning writers and confident students alike an easy-to-follow roadmap for improving one of the most important skills for success. En route to Sin Boldly!-induced, A+ paper bliss, readers encounter such topics as Choosing a Topic and Telling Your Story ("K.I.S.S.-Keep It Simple, Stupid") Literary Games (featuring "Francobabble for Freshman") Choosing a Voice ("Dissing the Prof") Grammatical Horrors ("A does not equal they") Common Mistakes ("Hopefully and Other Controversies")Fully revised and updated with new examples, quizzes, and tips, Sin Boldly! is not only a comprehensive guide, but also a fantastic, fun read for anyone who wants to write clearly and effectively.
