Professional people will be the first to acknowledge that their writing skill can stand improvement.
Grammar and style guides fall short of the answer to the problem, which is embedded in attitudes that surface as intellectual and mood faults. Professionalism on the Page reaches that very core of professionalism, framing the attitudinal codes of awareness and responsibility.
With these codes firmly in place, mental acuity flourishes through the approach and headline techniques presented, the method of Exact Writing.
In this enjoyable and instructive book, Scott puts us in the driver’s seat of the vehicle of prose, with its engine of professionalism transporting an audience of readers towards the destination of the writing purpose.
He signals the way to embrace all safely on board, across the minefield and pitfalls of the writing task, unharmed by the common misadventures with accuracy, precision, and clarity.
This book will equip you with the ‘Highway Code’ and the driving skill for that journey.
Use it as your handbook of insight for accomplishment beyond correctness, when words at work are fully under control.
