In almost any career, you must know how to write - even if it's not part of your job description. But if you are a reluctant writer, producing even the simplest memo may be a struggle.

Write Better Right Now is the springboard to get you ahead in any job, passion project, or situation that requires writing skills. No matter what you are called upon to do - blog posts, speeches, web content, press releases, or more - this step-by-step manual gives you the solid techniques you need to get the task done.

Write Better Right Now works because it is:

Short - It takes a concise approach, from first thoughts to final edits, and its "mix-and-match" structure means you only have to read the sections you need.
Practical - It is loaded with summations, short cuts, tips, cheat sheets, and hands-on exercises.
Solution-driven - Knowing where you've gone wrong is half the battle.

Write Better Right Now offers you the tools to identify your own problem patterns and choose the quickest and most appropriate fixes.
