summary Spunk Bite: A writer's guide to punchier, more engaging language style 108 When too tightly leashed writing chokes and loses its vitality Although the rules of composition popularized in William Strunk Jr and E B White's Elements of Style have been de rigueur for decades they won't exactly set your writing freeTo the rescue comes Spunk Bite a guide to bold and radiant language. This is one I think every writer should read It s an easy read Fun I really liked that the author never says never do this or only do that when writing Rather he presents reasonable arguments practical advice that really makes sense to me anyway

summary Spunk Bite: A writer's guide to punchier, more engaging language style 108 And style The secret according to bestselling author and former publishing executive Arthur Plotnik is to embrace those ualities that composition rulebooks sidestep among them surprise personality engagement edge and fearlessness Drawing on selections from today's most exciting writers Jonathan Franzen S. Whenever younger writers ask me for the best books on the craft I always recommend The Elements of Style Yes it s stodgy and impractical at times but it gives new writers a great rules based foundation on which to build their careers Arthur Plotnik s Spunk Bite demolishes that building to construct something bigger and betterI m really not being hyperbolic Spunk Bite is a manual on rewriting the rules of sentence construction Plotnik employs and of course breaks his own instructions in a way that seamlessly teaches by example Each lesson is in fact an extended sample of writing under that particular guideline Because the author practices what he preaches without being preachy simply reading the book is enough to deeply plant Plotnik s writing tips in the mind Spunk Bite will be of particular help to those who write for disparate audiences If you are reporting straight and dry news all day the shift over to writing a whimsical fantasy novel may be of a code switch than you re prepared to deal with However Plotnik s how to guide has such a broad application that it will improve almost any style or genre of the craft It may not make the switch easier per se but when you re using the same set of guidelines for both your journalism and your fiction the shift between the two is bound to be less jarringUnlike the venerable Strunk and White Plotnik doesn t worry that making his lessons humorous will diminish his authority He s a commanding writer as Spunk Bite evinces Make this the second book on writing you ever read
