The Architecture of Writing: A Micro Perspective to Write Your Book Effectively

books writing Feb 07, 2021

How to Write Your Book Easily & Effectively With Clear, Effective Sentences.

English is arguably the most straightforward language in the world. If you're writing or want to write a book in English, this is good news. However, to complete your project quickly and effectively, you need to understand the architecture of writing.

However, by the time I got to the 9th grade in high school, reading and writing had become less fun because I was being funneled in that direction by my teachers. 

 

Common sense at the time was that individuals who focused on the Arts and Humanities were not compensated as well as their peers in the social sciences. I didn’t want to commit to a life path that wouldn’t compensate me well. Because of this belief, even though I did great at writing, I always found a way to put up resistance to learning and mastering the art of writing whenever anyone would encourage me in that direction.
