So, what happens when you get to page 25 and you fall unexpectedly upon that one single sentence; one that simply does not look right; somehow inhibits the pace of a fast flowing chapter and fails to describe accurately how your character looked or felt? You may of course be one of those fortunate writers who can simply knock the words out, get them down on the page and after a morning of recording a score of 2,000, relax over a light lunch and a large glass of Chardonnay. However, you may be one of those poor unfortunates who strive over every sentence, knowing well what you want to write, but reluctantly unable to find the precise little phrase to exactly describe the moment. Competent writing often requires reference to a Dictionary or a Thesaurus. Good writers carry about with them a recording device of some sort, or that good old fashioned 'pen & paper' to record things they read, see and hear in everyday life. These 'Scribblings' are the sounds, the words and the sights of reality ... the 'real' things that people say to one another and the 'real' way they describe things they have seen and events they have witnessed to their friends and family. With a Dictionary, Thesaurus and Scribblings all being put to good use, the experienced writer will collect over time a 'Golden Book' ...or 'Golden Computer File' ... that contains the condensed results of all the searching and researching for that short, concise 'Golden' sentence. However you approach your writing projects; whether you find writing hard or easy, most of us will be prepared to admit we can do with all the help available. Of course, if you are one of the 'special ones' who simply need no help at all in your well established and highly profitable writing career, then please go no further. For the rest of us, this little gem contains 501 useful phrases and 'Scribblings' organized in such a way that any writer can quickly navigate to a phrase for use in a particular situation; or one that will remind them of another that will fit the bill nicely. This is not an answer to a 'writer's prayer', but it is a great second line reference book of phrases you can use every day in your writing journey. So, what does 501 Writers Useful Phrases contain? The book is divided in to ten sections and each one contains 50 short phrases, quotes, expressions or complete sentences to fit a particular subject heading.
