Ruth Beechick is one of the pioneers of the homeschooling movement. She has been a calm voice of wisdom and an encourager to homeschooling moms for many years. Cyndy thinks this might be her best book ever!

It is a common sense approach that speaks clearly to writers from young teens to adults. There are no boring drills and assignments. Read and use the insights as you see fit in your own writing. Headings include: *How to link sentences to keep the readers with you. *How following the story thread is better than "encyclopedia" fact writing. *How to solve most comma problems with grammar rules. *How to write with verbs instead of nouns to perk up your prose.

This book contrasts with much of today's teaching on how to write, which is ineffective and deadening to students. Ruth explains the historical roots of that old system so you can confidently move to the meaning system. A bonus chapter gives a history of how English language came to us.
