We asked writer Sue Reid Sexton to give us her thoughts on Better English Writing by Sue Moody. This is what she reported back to us:
“Ever been asked to write something and not had a clue where to start? Help is at hand. This little book will guide you through the basics of almost every project imaginable – essays, novels, business presentations, newspaper articles, web page content, university theses, and self-help books. Its extremely thorough index will help you to navigate straight to the information you need about cookery writing without wasting time learning about business reports. In each section, you’ll find entertaining examples of your particular type of writing project. At the back of the book, there’s a list of websites and further reading so you can develop your chosen area further. Complete with a rough guide to writing in plain English, it sets its own example by writing in the same way. Simple, clear and concise – it’s a handy dip-in starting point for brand new writers or those seeking to broaden their skills.” (ISBN 9781842057599)
