"There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all." - Peter F. Drucker
Feel like you're pounding sand when trying to write that masterpiece? Here's a cursory review of potential solution to writing better thanks to an audiobook.
The classic works on the art of nonfiction writing come alive now in a complete package.
This expanded collection presents William Zinsser's On Writing Well, the classic teaching book that has sold more than 1 million copies, together with a new 90-minute section that tells you how to write a memoir.
Based on a course that Zinsser taught at Yale, On Writing Well has long been praised by writers, teachers and students for its sound advice, its clarity and the warmth of its style. It's for everybody who wants to learn how to write or who needs to do some writing to get through the day. Whether you want to write about people and places, science and technology, business, sports or the arts, this is the definitive guide to the craft of nonfiction. It's not an end all or be-all for everyone, but has potential value and merit.
Part II of this collection -- on memoir, personal history and family history -- tells you in helpful detail how to write the story of your life: who you are, who you once were, and what heritage you come from. Throughout, Zinsser refers to the work of many successful memoir writers, including Frank McCourt, Annie Dillard, Russell Baker and Eudora Welty, to demonstrate how they solved the problems of selection, compression, focus and tone that every memoir writer struggles with.
I think it's worth checking into.
