Three Books, Three Looks at Writing

A frequently asked question I get is, "What are the differences among your books on writing?" Here are my one-sentence answers: 
  • How to Write Fast Under Pressure focuses on techniques for overcoming writer's block and generating ideas by planning creatively, drafting quickly, and rewriting efficiently, whether you are a business or a technical writer.
  • The Art of E-mail Writing concerns writing email at work with special attention to getting to the point, addressing your reader's concerns, organizing your ideas, coming across professionally, and managing your email system.
  • The Art of On-the-Job Writing describes the qualities of the writing product and the steps of the writing process in the natural order that they should emerge to an effective writer in any profession.  
I hope this helps, but if you have further questions, I'm just a post or an email away.
