Why am I purchasing this book today? 100 Ways to Improve Your Writing by Gary Provost is, to be completely honest, one of those books I don’t even need to read the cover blurbs for. I’m the kind of person who constantly looks for ways to improve–everything from re-reading the Chicago Manual of Style to memorizing Strunk & White, I have become a student of the written word.
Even after decades of writing and editing, I still find the best way to stay on top of my game is to read books like this. Even if I think I know the writing game pretty well, volumes like this one ALWAYS have something I forgot to consider or never saw in quite THAT way before. So I’m purchasing this book from Amazon today, just as soon as I get done writing this up. If you’re a student of the writing game, chances are you’re in the same boat I am…you have probably already read this one and I’m just a come-lately on this title.
