READ & DOWNLOAD ê Spunk Bite: A writer's guide to punchier, more engaging language style And style The secret according to bestselling author and former publishing executive Arthur Plotnik is to embrace those ualities that composition rulebooks sidestep among them surprise personality engagement edge and fearlessness Drawing on selections from today's most exciting writers Jonathan Franzen S. Plotnik has written a wonderful primer for writers desiring to move beyond competent writing into exceptional writing He covers a variety of topics that once mastered will enhance a writer s ability This is one of those books that should be owned so it can be reviewed again and again as one traverses the writing skill trailIt is true that Plotnik s own writing is perhaps too spunky and too bitey moving into the realm of bashing the reader over the head with too many exciting words and phrases However I would argue that those learning how to add spunk and bite to their own writing need to see overt examples implementing the discussed techniues to this end Plotnik is successfulSpunk and Bite also includes several exercises at the end so reader s can practice the techniues explored in the book Overall this is a book I d recommend to most writers

READ & DOWNLOAD ê Spunk Bite: A writer's guide to punchier, more engaging language style When too tightly leashed writing chokes and loses its vitality Although the rules of composition popularized in William Strunk Jr and E B White's Elements of Style have been de rigueur for decades they won't exactly set your writing freeTo the rescue comes Spunk Bite a guide to bold and radiant language. I got this as a Christmas gift and thought the title was witty Unfortunately the title was the best part of the book Originally published in 2005 and reprinted in 2007 I have to wonder whether the author didn t realise that at some point the members of Generation Y about whom he was not particularly kind would potentially pick up the book in hope of some new insightsI was at a loss to find any new insights in this book It seemed that the book rehashed advice I ve read time and again in other style guides and how to manuals sometimes to the point where Plotnik directly uoted them for example his uotes from Lynne Truss and Stephen King I may be personally biased here as I find Eats Shoots Leaves The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation and On Writing to be two of the most invaluable books in my reference library In fact I would suggest that instead of Plotnik s book which uotes from these and then picks them apart to just go straight to the sourceThe final jarring note was that there were so many spelling errors in the book Black Horse instead of Black House by Stephen King or Annie E Proulx instead of E Annie Proulx in fact this appeared as Annie E Proulx Annie Proulx and E Annie Proulx at different points in the text I realise proofreaders can miss things at times but Plotnik lists amongst his other works The Elements of Editing I don t think I ll read it if this finished product is anything to judge its advice by Good Blonde Others just go straight to the sourceThe final Diary of an SM Romance jarring note was that there were so many spelling errors in the book Black Horse instead of Black House by Stephen King or Annie E Proulx instead of E Annie Proulx in fact this appeared as Annie E Proulx Annie Proulx and E Annie Proulx at different points in the text I realise proofreaders can miss things at times but Plotnik lists amongst his other works The Elements of Editing I don t think I ll read it if this finished product is anything to The Floating Bridge Nettles judge its advice by
