For more than twenty years, Getting the Words Right has helped writers from all professions rewrite, revise, and refine their writing. In this new edition, author Theodore Cheney offers 39 targeted ways you can improve your writing, including how to: create smooth transitions between paragraphs; correct the invisible faults of inconsistency, incoherence, and imbalance; overcome problems of shifting point of view and style; and express your ideas clearly by trimming away weak or extra words. Youll strengthen existing pieces and every future work by applying these three simple principles: reduce, rearrange, and reword. Once the secrets of revision are yours, youll follow the same practices that Hemingway did - and youll get the words right, too.--BOOK JACKET.
