Everyone Can Write

Everyone Can Write

You have an piece of writing due tomorrow and are stuck sitting there looking at a blank screen. You pace the floor back and forth, clean the house, make dinner, and do anything but start writing.

You have first-sentence syndrome.

Many people find it difficult to write that first sentence whether it is in an essay, a report, or narrative writing and can often result in writers block.

But don’t fret, Howard Gelman who has taught writing for over 25 years has written a book titled Everyone Can Write where he explains little steps you can take to cure you of first-sentence syndrome and start writing.

Everyone Can Write is a practical ‘how to write’ book that solves problems that beginner writers struggle with by giving them an easy to follow and simple set of rules that allows them to write rapidly and clearly.

He has a three-step formula: Pre-write, free-write and re-write, which helps you improve quality of work, research necessary information, and editing.

This book is great for aspiring writers who feel they have something to write about but need the tools to get started and for struggling writers who need a push to get back on track.

Everyone Can Write is the essential pocket reference for anyone from a student to a business executive.

AUTHOR: Howard Gelman is an associate lecturer at the Faculty of Arts at Macquarie University, where he teaches business and media communications. He has worked in broadcasting, producing programs in Britain, USA and Australia where he was commissioning editor for ABC. He has project edited many non-fiction trade and business books and has also developed writing workshops in Sydney, London, New York and Chicago. He was inspired to write this book, as he truly believes that ‘everyone can write’.
