My writing has been getting worse lately, and before I do some of the drills in Speed Studies (not to increase speed but only to improve clarity) I thought I might show what my Anniversary writing looks like – in the form of a “quiz”.
The quiz part of this is for you to identify the book from which this short extract comes — but perhaps keep it to yourself for a while so other people do not read the answer. I have read and re-read the book often and find it quite inspiring at times, especially this bit. (I have inserted most of the apostrophes and commas which I hope does not make it harder to read.)
It is here
(I am afraid that I was unable to attach it within this text or put on some ‘cyber-blog-space’)
But of greater interest to me is for you to spot any errors I may have made. And also, which is even more important, to suggest what I should address to improve my writing — which forms are difficult to understand, etc.
