Hi Gary ...
I just wanted to say that I really like your website. It has so much great information in it. It’s going to take me weeks to get through it. I can’t believe you were able to compile such an amazing list of information on concise writing. I have to say that it is an inspiration for me and I am going to take the time to read every bit of it. Excellent work and I can’t wait to start learning something! Well, good news- I already did apply some of your ideas to my proposal.As I wrote her in my reply:
I manage and offer my website for almost no compensation (commissions for Amazon book sales usually wouldn't even pay for one latte a week!). So comments like yours are the compensation I get … and appreciate!Giving me her permission to identify her, Elise responded to me:
I liked your website so much that I showed it to my friend Ben (from the UK) who writes a blog on literature reviews and he included it in today’s blog: http://www.literaturereviewhq.com/plain-english-day/ look under Fat Free writing (I hope you don’t mind).He linked to a section of my annotated directory of websites that "give advice on cutting the fat from your writing--so your readers can easily chew, digest and be nourished by your top-choice words": Garbl's Fat-Free Writing Links.
If you haven't visited my website, Garbl's Writing Center, it's a free portal to these writing tools:
- an annotated directory of writing resources on the Web
- an editorial style manual
- a plain-English writing guide
- several guides to concise writing
- a bookshelf of writing references I recommend.
