Wordsmithy: Hot Tips for the Writing Life
Wordsmithy: Hot Tips for the Writing Life by Douglas Wilson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I try to be scrupulous in my use of the five stars allotted to me by the gentle people of Goodreads. Five stars means “it was amazing.” And I can’t honestly say that about this book. But it was certainly fantastic. I—four stars—”really liked it.” I chuckled and I learned. And it was short. It’s hard to beat those qualities.

All Christian writers should pick up this book, and most Christian preachers, especially those who do anything remotely close to manuscripting their sermons. Sermonizing is only one special form of the writing craft, and so much of Wilson’s advice applies.
