Is That Write?

Is That Right?What It Is:As many of you have probably guessed by the sheer fact I write a blog, I consider myself a relatively accomplished writer (it is, after all, how I make a living). In some ways, it baffles me that other people don’t have the easy command of words that I like to think that I do – but then it also baffles me how other people have a handle on crazy math problems or interesting spatial challenges. Anyway, all of this to say, if you get antsy at the prospect of drafting a cover letter or you simply want to polish up your writing skills till they shine, than this handy reference book should be on your shelf. Whether you’re using old fashioned pen and paper or a digital medium, you’ll learn the ins and outs of everything from basic resumes and greeting card signatures to more specialized, nuanced prose like the appropriate message to a friend that’s just lost a loved one, or how to write a particularly salient Tweet.

Who It’s For:Your graduating niece or nephew, as a must-have resource going into college. Your sibling that’s great with numbers and patterns, but could use some refinement in their writing. Your friend that’s jumping into a job that requires a bit of writing – they’ll never be caught adrift with this handy manual!

What It Costs:List price is $40, but you can find it for less online.

Where It’s At:Fine booksellers nationwide, and online.

    I like to read more than I like to write. It may be helpful for some journals I write while travelling.

    I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t get a lot out of this book – writing is just not one of my talents.

    I am definitely not a writer so I wouldn’t need this but it would be a great gift for many of my friends!

    The Three bonus entry: I would find this book useful as it’s always a good idea to brush up on ones grammar. I have terrible writing form & wish it could be better.

  7. Lisa S says:

    I would love this book and have added it my ‘must own’ list. Writing is everything to me and I don’t mind a bit of help now and again.
