• Explore ways to create convincing dialogue without resorting to distracting dialect, pauses, or ill-placed exposition.

• Conquer words and phrases that propagate like a virus.

• Find answers to the following questions:

- Is it ever alright to use “alright”?
- What is the correct order for stacked modifiers?
- Why should you avoid filter words?
- How can you reduce word bloat?
- Are adverbs really as villainous as many insist?
- What about semicolons, present tense, and head-hopping?
- What is contractionitis? How can it be cured?

• Learn how to:

- Minimize repetition of words such as “but” and “because.”
- Decrease reliance on crutch words.
- Reduce word bloat.
- Maximize action beats.

This book is a must-have for all writers, from amateur to professional, fiction to nonfiction.

Sprinkled throughout, you’ll find exercises and examples with ideas for story prompts. Snap ’em up at will, and …

… write on.
