Knight’s writing about grammar has me dog-earring my book. I can relate to the simplification of statements, though I often over communicate them anyway. I have installed the Grammarly Chrome extension, but so far it has proven worthless. Chapters five and six in Journalistic Writing are far more efficient in the explanation of the correct and incorrect use of grammar.
I am particularly fond of Knight’s comments on creativity and the careful means not to kill it. For me, creativity is absolutely the key to good writing but if you aren’t careful, your reader gets lost; this is something I suffer from on a daily basis. It is easy to appreciate the format of this book-I will certainly use these chapters as a tool in my writings going forward.
