So to make the writing better the writer should include lots of interesting details, with more clarity. The writing is further interesting if it is presented in a way where the reader imagines the scenario. • Good writing conveys a clear sense of purpose: Most of the faculties agree that good writing delivers a clear sense of the writer’s purpose.
As I was reading Melissa Duffy’s “Inspiration, and Craig Vetter’s “Bonehead Writing,” I found myself connecting with Vetter’s paper more than Duffy’s. I found that the presentation in “Bonehead Writing” to capture my attention, and that Vetter’s feelings about writing was similar to my opinion on writing. Through his wording and humor, I think Craig Vetter wrote the best essay.

The narrator uses time to justify his actions on the old man, but Poe makes it clear the readers time and narrators time mean two very different things.

The second vital element of the book is that the author makes use of the works of several other authors to make his work reliable, and one which does not evoke suspension from users. The use of other writers’ works to explain his ideas give readers the opportunity to conduct further research on the topic to acquire more enlightenment on the implications of the Great War in Europe. The primary limitation in the book, however, is that the author fails to use visual presentations to make it easy for readers to understand some of the concepts in the book.

I liked that the author kept me interested in the writing because it reeled me into the story so I didn’t feel the need to start to drift away from it. It kept you into the story and I liked that because of all of the spontaneous details that the author gave to elaborate on his ideas.
