Everyone Writes — Read This Book

Big Red Car here. It is convertible weather in the ATX. The azaleas will be here in a month. It is feeling like spring.

So The Boss is a reader like nobody you’ve ever seen. The guy has a business book, a history, a trashy beach book, a self improvement book, a novel cooking at all times. He has a few on deck waiting for his future consideration.

He has read a book that needs reading by YOU!

Let me cut to the chase: Everyone Writes by Ann Handley. Came out in 2014 and he’s read it twice already.

Everyone Writes

If you are writing anything on the Internet, you will benefit from the thoughtful advice in this book. This book is like a tool box of contractor grade tools which cut straight and true. It tells you exactly what to do and exactly how to do it. It does not waste your time and it provides tip after tip in bite sized units that allow you to stop and start your reading.

The ideas are obvious, simple and effective. They are all in one place and the voice that is whispering in your ear is friendly and supportive. It is the voice of a fellow traveler.

Give it a read and you will not regret it.

Here’s The Boss’s “on deck” set of books. He’s reading the Koran currently also.

But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Read the book — Everyone Writes by Ann Handley. Please.

      What I really liked was the validation of everything you and I know about writing with several more nuggets all compiled in a single place and well said.

      It is like listening to the best rendition of your favorite song recognizing the words but having your brain touched by the quality of the singer and the music itself.

      Other than that — meh!

      Hope you are well.

    This is a great book for anyone who touches a keyboard and whose keystrokes end up on a screen. It is a book that will make you a better writer immediately. It is a series of tips that are actionable within 2.5 seconds. It is also an easy read as the tips are presented in bit sized — or bite sized — portions.
