"Who Needs A Manual To Write Real Good"
"Who Needs A Manual To Write Real Good" is a tongue-in-cheek commentary that recently aired on NPR’s All Things Considered. Author Marc Acito hails the 50th anniversary of William Strunk and E.B. White’s Elements of Style, the highly acclaimed grammar manual.
Acito playfully turns the book’s rules of grammar on their head. We especially liked his version of “shall” versus “will”. His commentary will make you chuckle.
If his commentary leaves you doubting your writing ability, TheCapitol.Net offers an intensive one-day course that can help you improve your writing capability. Writing Refresher: Critical Thinking and Writing helps you understand the three dimensions of professional writing: organization, format, and style. It shows you how to apply critical thinking to the writing process, develop an effective writing style, and return to plain English.
