Not since The Elements of Style has a writing guide had the ability to turn a writer''s work around so effectively.
From the Publisher:
"These days, most creative-writing courses teach self-indulgence. Write Tight counsels discipline. It is worth more than a university education. Its advice is gold." -Dean Koontz

Foreword by Lawrence Block

Not since The Elements of Style has a writing guide had the ability to turn a writer's work around so effectively. Every writer struggles with keeping their prose focused and concise, but surprisingly few books address this essential topic. Write Tight is an informative and utterly readable guide that tackles these issues head-on.

William Brohaugh, former editor of Writer's Digest, goes beyond the discussion on redundancy and overwriting to take on evasiveness, affectations, roundabout writing, tangents and "invisible" words. Other topics include:

-Outlining the four levels of wordiness
-Identifying 16 types of flabby writing
-Exercises that help writers avoid wordiness
-Streamlining through sidebars and checklists
-Tests that show how concise a writer's prose is

"Write Tight is a supremely valuable, 'must-have' for aspiring writers in all fields from prose to nonfiction, journalistic copy, screenwriting and so much more." -Midwest Book Review
