You can look at this book as a tribute to language--its pulse, its purpose, the chime of its music. And particularly its play on the page: The book's core is how to see the world as a writer.
It supplies tools to find and cultivate your writer's voice, that unique combination of attributes--sensitivity to language, storytelling and audience--by which writers see and define the world.
Think Like a Writer discusses writing at a structural level: how words work in sentences and how sentences work in stories, moving to how to use those elements and that writer's stance to write across genres.
The book explores how to stimulate your story-hunting process, and how to get your stories written, for both fiction and nonfiction writing.
Oh--and it's funny.
