'Championship Writing' to get from the World Series to the Stanley Cup Final

'Championship Writing' to get from the World Series to the Stanley Cup Final
Source: Reusableart.com

It's letter-writing time for "the holidays," as well as year-end report-writing time in many jobs. So what better time for some writing tips?

That's what I thought when a little orange-and-white paperback book started jumping out at me (almost literally) from my collection of writing manuals. That book is "Championship Writing" by Paula LaRocque. With a title like that, of course it's an attention-getter lately -- but looking at it gave me an idea for a new series of posts.

In coming weeks, I'll take my ten favorites from LaRocque's 50 short, accessible chapters, and write to you about them. Each one is coaching about a particular good thing or good way to write -- so it's a challenge I'll enjoy to make myself write well about each tip.

Don't miss the first in the series, which will appear shortly after this introduction. It's headlined 'Championship Writing' -- bumpy or smooth?'

  • Happy New Year, Margaret! I have been in a reading and writing slump. Maybe your posts about "championship writing" will spur me in good direction.

  • In reply to folkloric:

    Happy New Year to you, folkloric! I hope the posts will help. They seem to be good slump-breakers to me as I find them, so I hope they keep that quality for you.

  • I meant to type "spur me in a good direction." Er....the right direction?

  • In reply to folkloric:

    That's OK -- as left-handed as I am, "a good direction" is fine.
