Elements of Style - An About Freelance Writing Book Review

A mere 105 pages, this slim volume packs in all sorts of vital information for the freelance writer. Written in a crisp and honest style, it's easy to use, making it perfect for the writer's desk.

Broken up in to a series of 'rules,' Strunk et. al. review the principles of good writing and usage in easily understandable language. There are plenty of examples so you can figure out exactly what they are suggesting.

For instance, if you want to be clear on the difference between passive and active voice, you'll find it here, and quickly. Or, tighten up your manuscript by reviewing "Omitting Needless Words."

Finally, before sending any manuscript, read and re-read "An Approach to Style." Here are 21 'reminders' we all need to remember and use. Absolutely a requirement for anyone who wants to write well.
