内容紹介

America's most influential writing teacher offers an engaging and practical guide to effective short-form writing.

In HOW TO WRITE SHORT, Roy Peter Clark turns his attention to the art of painting a thousand pictures with just a few words. Short forms of writing have always existed-from ship logs and telegrams to prayers and haikus. But in this ever-changing Internet age, short-form writing has become an essential skill. Clark covers how to write effective and powerful titles, headlines, essays, sales pitches, Tweets, letters, and even self-descriptions for online dating services. With examples from the long tradition of short-form writing in Western culture, HOW TO WRITE SHORT guides writers to crafting brilliant prose, even in 140 characters.

I didn't really find it that educational or delightful as described on the front. It's a series of short chapters making points about writing short. But it read to me more like the author pointing out what he likes about short writing, with no real instruction. Just chapter after chapter of often repetitive examples. Some of the examples were fun/funny and some of the points good, but.....I didn't really learn much from it and it was a pretty boring read with the repetition. Each chapter also ends with grace notes to summarize the chapter - since each chapter was only 2-3 pages long and you had literally read the point seconds before....huh. You could just read the grace notes over to get what is in this book.

Author Roy Peter Clark offers a fascinating tour of 'short' writing, and the book is jam-packed with examples of headlines, epitaphs, lyrics, t-shirts, jokes, slogans, marginalia, texts, tweets, fortune cookies, lists, etc. More importantly, Clark does a superb job of analyzing and explaining the construction and impact of these compact word packages.

The book is well organized and the writing is clear and, of course, concise. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned a lot.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Amazing Book and Author 2017/2/1

I ordered this for my quarterly book club at work, and it was such a fun read! Awesomely enough, the author Roy Peter Clark is a local in my city and actually attended our book club meeting! He's such a nice and informative guy. This book is helpful for writers looking to hone their craft, and also enjoy a bit of humor while they're doing it. My favorite part was probably how, at the end of each chapter, he includes a few things you can do in your daily life to utilize the lessons he discusses in each chapter. You can really use the many tools in this book to craft your writing. a

5つ星のうち 5.0 A book to help writers be clear and concise. 2016/10/25

How to Write Short: Word Craft for Fast Times by Roy Peter Clark is another one of his great books. I recommend it for anyone wanting to improve on clarity and conciseness in writing. Clark writes with humor which makes this book (and his others, too) enjoyable and easy to read. His examples of short writing (conciseness) are many, including epitaphs, mottoes, slogans, famous speeches, and tweets. Clark shows what effective short writing is and isn't. At the end of every chapter, exercises are given to challenge the reader. Many of the exercises are about being observant of short writing in everyday life. Here are some quotes from How to Write Short which I hope are convincing enough for someone to want to buy this wonderful book.
-- "But here is the key: whether the writing is formal or informal, whether it appears as a tome or a paragraph, the writer has the duty to perfect, polish, and revise, even if that work needs to be done in a minute or less."
-- "In studying thousands of examples of short writing, old and new, I've been amazed at how many of the most memorable depend on parallelism (with variation) to work their magic."
-- "There is no right answer, except for this: A good short writer must be a disciplined cutter, not just of clutter, but of language that would be useful if she had more space. How, what, and when to cut in the interest of brevity, focus, and precision must preoccupy the mind of every good short writer."

5つ星のうち 5.0 RPC Sharpens Shorts; Gets Buy 2013/9/30

So. You are a boomer with a manuscript in hand terrified of having to promote a book in a new world of blogs and tweets. What do you do? Start by reading Roy Peter Clark's new book, How to Write Short.

Clark writes his advice in 35 short reflections organized into two sections: "How to Write Short" and "How to Write Short with a Purpose". He caps these sections off with an epilog: "A Few Final Words--441 to Be Exact".

Clark's first reflection focuses on getting you to open your eyes. In a world inundated with data in the form of writing, images, and sounds, what catches your attention? Coyly, Clark paraphrases the line from Sixth Sense. Not, "I see dead people", but "I see short writing"(15). Clark collects shorts like other people collect sidewalk pennies. In reviewing the sparse style of these shorts, he draws attention to the backstory that makes them interesting. Shorts sparkle because they remind you of something. A "grace note", Clark adds, increases the sparkle by reframing the sparkle in a new, interesting way. Or it may just offer a jolt (17-21).

I did not expect a writing book to be a page turner. I did not expect How to Write Short would get me to look at my long writing differently. I do expect that I will be referring back to this book in my book's next edit. Yeah!
