Part 3. Write for Success

 

I love being a writer. What I can't stand is the paper work.

 
 --Peter De Vries

No one can deny there's a lot of that! This part of the book zeroes in on the four types of writing introduced earlier: exposition, narration, persuasion, and description. You'll learn how to construct effective explanations, fascinating stories, convincing arguments, expressive journals, and memorable poems. The last chapter in this section explores writing across the curriculum. I'll guide you through the conventions of writing in the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities.
