for more than six years the go-to fiction writer’s quick
reference to grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage

     Grammar manuals are commonplace. There are hundreds of them on the market at any time. The problem for storytellers is that virtually all of these handbooks are intended for the nonfiction writer. Most of them are useful to the writers of essays, research papers, and other scholarly works, and they serve quite well for journalists and book-length nonfiction authors, but they are patently ill-suited for use by fiction writers. Reasons for nonfiction writers to use nonstandard English are almost nonexistent, but storytellers break the rules all the time—it’s almost part of their job description. Indeed, creative writing wouldn't be very creative if storytellers had to color inside the lines all the time, would it? After all, they’re not writing graduate papers or refrigerator manuals.
     Writers’ Devils is different from nearly every other writing guide in two important ways:

  • It recognizes the special requirements of fiction writers
  • it aproaches topics in a conversational, easy-to-follow style, different from the stiff, pedantic, textbook-like feel of most grammar manuals.
