It may come as a shock to texters, but job recruiters, bosses, college admissions boards, and even complaint desks do not recognize u as a pronoun, kthxbai as an acceptable closing, or stream-of-consciousness as an effective technique. But, short of culling through numbingly detailed, often dated style and usage guides, where does one go for help? Writing on the Go quickly gives readers the confidence needed to write with speed, precision, and impact. The book is divided into three parts: Think Before You Write, Write According to Plan, and Apply Polish -- every writer's rules to live by. It then explains author Rob Colter's Top Ten Writing Tips step-by-step, covering everything from knowing one's audience to selecting a format, organizing points in a logical fashion, and writing clearly and effectively. With its precise and practical information, down-to-earth tone, and witty examples, Writing on the Go is the perfect pocket resource for anyone needing quick solutions to everyday writing problems.
