Writing Tools

I just wanted to share what I picked from Nick Daws’ latest post at mywritingblog.com. You remember Nick, the freelance writer, editor and coach I interviewed some time ago?

Nick alerts us on Fifty Tools Which Can Help You in Writing. This is a set of articles written by Roy Peter Clark, Senior Scholar at the Poynter Institute. “These articles,” says Nick, “are aimed primarily at journalists, but any writer could benefit from studying them, and many are relevant to fiction writers as well.”

I must confess I haven’t had time to go through all the articles myself. But I’ve been able to peruse quite a few of them in a random manner. I can tell you they are full of tips, illustrations and exercises that will no doubt help improve your writing. Like Nick I’d be surprised if you don’t find anything useful.

He has been editor of trade union newsletter and has contributed articles for various in-house magazines, publications, and the local press. He blogs since 2007, and when he is not reading or surfing on the internet, he is hiking over an 8-km-daily routine.
