Book Review: Everybody Writers
My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Cons: Non-fiction isn't everyone's cup of tea. Not all of you want to learn to write better, although ALL of us can benefit from writing better. Because as Ann says, Everybody Writes. That social post you just tapped out counts. So does that text you sent thirty seconds ago. And the email you labored over at work.
Pros: Stronger writing benefits all of us. Ann guides us through the briar patch of often misused words in the English language. She writes on a level accessible to everyone not just English majors or college graduates or novel writers. And, as promised, she's funny. Many non-fiction books deliver the goods in a brown paper bag with little fanfare. Here's the writing advice you ordered. Ann adds entertainment value to her advice.
I have to admit I haven't finished reading this week's book selection. While Ann (I call her Ann because she addresses me so personally in her fortnightly emails I feel like we're friends now) delivers on her promise that the revised edition of Everybody Writes is 10% funnier. The book is a seven-course meal compared to the fast food novels I usually review
As a guide on writing better, I want to absorb her advice. I'm thinking through how to apply her wisdom to my day job in communications as well as to marketing my author brand. I have a lot of work ahead of me.
Whether you own a business and want to write more engaging social media posts, you're writing your first novel and need a little push forward in mechanics, or you're staging your 50th marketing campaign, Ann has your back.
PS -- I read her first edition many years ago and was excited to receive this request from my Christmas list last month.
