Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 We expect writers to know the rules before they can write, and this expectation creates insecurity and inadequacy. #2 The world is filled with writing that is no fun and not optional, and we can’t eliminate the five-paragraph theme or the what-I-did-on-my-summer-vacation essay, but we can invest them with meaning beyond the assignment affliction. #3 The personal is indeed central to writing. We need to inject the intelligence and personality of the writer into the five-paragraph theme, and we must understand that every writing act is ultimately an exchange between two people. #4 Writing is hard, and it will always be hard. Don’t expect anything less than a lot of sweat.
