“Writing is a craft you can learn,” says Roy Peter Clark. “You need tools, not rules.” In this essential guide, Clark distills decades of experience into fifty tools that writers of all kinds can use every day. You may be crafting a newspaper story or an admissions essay for college. You may be writing a technical report or drafting your first novel. You may be a student or a teacher, a poet or a critic, a columnist or a blogger. You may be preparing a PowerPoint presentation or penning a love letter.

I really enjoy this audio book and re-listen to it every few months. The straight forward approach broken out into bitsized rules works perfectly.

Becoming an author is as simple as adjusting your mind-set and modifying the skills you already have. Get the knowledge you need to achieve your dream today. Do you feel as if your life's purpose is to become an author and share the stories in your head with the rest of the great wide world? Do you long to write the next great American novel? You might already have a couple books under your belt but want to take your productivity, talent, and marketing efforts to the next level.

This was a great little audio book. It doesn't tell you how to write the next great American novel, but it gives the reader suggestions on how to get there by treating writing as something that requires effort, and the author makes recommendations on how to make that effort pay off through organization, habits, the use of social media and more. I would definitely recommend this book and hope to put some of the lessons in place with my own writing career.
