This little grammar book is entertaining me again. How is it possible?

The writing nuggets draw me in, every time. 

Last night, I sat fireside (during an unusually cold, three degree Fahrenheit evening in Arkansas) and read a most helpful reminder, found on page twenty-one: 

"If those who have studied the art of writing are in accord on any one point, it is this: the surest way to arouse and hold the reader's attention is by being specific, definite, and concrete. The greatest writers—Homer, Dante, Shakespeare—are effective largely because they deal in particulars and report the details that matter. Their words call up pictures."

Yes.

When I write, please help me to do this.

Now ... back at it! (Back to my writing, that is...)

Hugs to all,
