    The Writing Book doesn't just talk about how to write fiction; it takes you, step-by-step, through the process of doing it. Each chapter concentrates on one aspect of writing: getting started, bringing characters to life, writing convincing dialogue, revising and writer's block, etc. Exercises in each chapter are carefully structured so that each one builds on the one before. Examples from contemporary Australian writing demonstrate how different writers tackle the technical aspects of their art. By working your way through this book, you'll gradually craft a piece of fiction, and develop confidence in your own fictional voice. If you'd like to write, but you're not sure how to start, The Writing Book will show you how. If you're already writing, The Writing Book will give you practical ideas for new energy and direction.

  • YOU COULD LOOK IT UP : THE REFERENCE SHELF FROM ANCIENT BABYLON TO WIKIPEDIA
    YOU COULD LOOK IT UP : THE REFERENCE SHELF FROM ANCIENT BABYLON TO WIKIPEDIA
    LYNCH JACK
    ISBN: 9780802777522
    Title: YOU COULD LOOK IT UP : THE REFERENCE SHELF FROM ANCIENT BABYLON TO WIKIPEDIA
    Author: LYNCH JACK
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    An illuminating exploration of reference books through time and across cultures, from the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi to Wikipedia.


    Knowledge is of two kinds, said Samuel Johnson in 1775. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it. Today we think of Wikipedia as the source of all information, the ultimate reference. Yet it is just the latest in a long line of aggregated knowledge-reference works that have shaped the way we've seen the world for centuries.

    You Could Look It Up chronicles the captivating stories behind these great works and their contents, and the way they have influenced each other. From The Code of Hammurabi, the earliest known compendium of laws in ancient Babylon almost two millennia before Christ to Pliny's Natural History; from the 11th-century Domesday Book recording land holdings in England to Abraham Ortelius's first atlas of the world; from Samuel Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language to The Whole Earth Catalog to Google, Jack Lynch illuminates the human stories and accomplishment behind each, as well as its enduring impact on civilization. In the process, he offers new insight into the value of knowledge.
