Synopsis

How About it, Writer? by Charles Romesburg

This book contains lists of 1,616 great opening sentences from nonfiction pieces, 1,633 great titles, and hundreds of great transition sentences, ways of saying for example, and ways of closing nonfiction pieces -- along with instructions and illustrations for using them as models for your writing. For instance, suppose you are writing a piece and you feel that your opening sentence is not as good as it could be, but you don't see how to create a better one. To escape the mental block, just go to the list of 1,616 opening sentences and look around for hints. In minutes the sentence you're wishing for will flash into your mind. You won't be plagiarizing; the sentence you create will be one of a kind. The author, a university professor, compiled the lists from reading more than 12,000 published essays.
