Editing Made Easy: Simple Rules for Effective Writing 

By Bruce Kaplan

Amazon:

As the title states, this book is designed to be easy to use for all writers. It offers straightforward, practical guidelines for editing, without getting into the weeds of advanced English grammar. You will find no loftier technical grammatical terms here, such as present perfect progressive, correlative conjunctions, imperative mood or interrogative adjective. However, much of the advice in this book is not to be written in stone. English is a flexible language, and writing a creative calling. As you will see, there are many acceptable ways for writers to express themselves. What you will find in this book is:

--How to avoid the most common errors of grammar and spelling.

--How to spot typographical and factual errors.

--Understanding the styles of print and online media.

--How to make your writing more exciting and dynamic.

--And improving your odds of having your work published.

The goal of this book is simple―to put the odds on the writers’ side; to increase your chances of being published or finding success as a reporter, feature writer, novelist, freelance writer, blogger, Web developer, Web editor, communications consultant, advertising copywriter, speechwriter or public relations consultant―in fact, anything involving the written word.

 

基于机器翻译:正如标题所述,本书旨在易于使用。它为修改文字提供了直接、实用的指导,避免涉及高级英语语法的啰嗦。你不会在这里找到高级的技术语法术语,例如现在完成进行时、相关连词、祈使语气或疑问形容词。显然,本书中的许多建议并不是一成不变的。英语是灵活的语言,写作是一种创造性的召唤。正如您将看到的,作者可以通过许多可以接受的写作方式来表达自己。

 

这本书的目标很简单:帮助作者发表;增加您

发表或获得成功——事实上,任何涉及书面文字的事情——的机会,不管你是记者、专题作家、小说家、自由作家、博客作者、网络开发人员、网络编辑、传播顾问、广告文案撰写人、演讲撰稿人、或公共关系顾问。
