Thoughts on Andrew Le Peau's Write Better
Andrew Le Peau is a long-time writer and editor. His Write Better: A Lifelong Editor on Craft, Art, and Spirituality is the first book of his that I have read. Having recently cleared out my mind and increased my reading time, I decided to pick this book up. It doesn't hurt to learn to write better.
Le Peau organized the book in the three divisions you see in the subtitle. Chapters averaged about ten pages per, which makes the book easy to digest in small chunks. I generated about six pages of notes off of the book, most of which came from the first section. Though there are interesting bits throughout, the first section is what most interested me since I was looking for ideas on craft and technique rather than his views on art or spirituality.
The book is well-organized, has useful information, and is an enjoyable read. If you would like to write better, consider picking it up.
