Writing Tools Blog

A great new blog to check out is one from Roy Peter Clark: http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=78.

The blog is aimed at giving the reader tools for writing. His latest post goes over how to "stick the landing" when using a quote to end a piece of writing.

"If the quote is long enough, embed the attribution.
The reader will learn the name of the speaker earlier,
and will discover the stronger words in a
more emphatic position."

Clark also has a new book titled Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer. You can view the quick list of the 50 writing tools here: http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=78&aid=103943. A few highlights include not being afraid to use a long sentence, simple and short is better than technical and complex, and you should create your writing around a certain question that will be answered in your work.
