"A story is a living thing." So begins "Way of the Screenwriter, " a book with a novel, refreshing approach to the long-practiced art of screenwriting. Amnon Buchbinder brilliantly reinterprets screenwriting as a way for writers to capture a story's essence, thus giving it greater meaning and fascination for the audience. Full of practical examples and exercises to enhance the skills of both beginning and experienced screenwriters, the guide is far more than a how-to book. It is a comprehensive work that covers screenwriting from virtually every conceivable angle, while also offering a different, compelling approach. It is a book that illuminates the why behind the how and points the way toward a deeper understanding of how stories work on the screen. Perhaps most importantly, "Way of the Screenwriter" treats screenwriting not as some disreputable task, but rather as the fine art it is: the convergence of storytelling, writing, and filmmaking.

The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say. F. Scott Fitzgerald

Each chapter has been revamped to provide more helpful examples and workable assignments to aid the reader in applying the skills acquired.

Writing English with style is aimed at first-year college students, but will be equally valuable to the final year or postgraduate second language speaker.

Contents include the following: The process of assessing, planning, writing, editing and handing in an assignment; Technical requirements, such as the use of scientific language, abbreviations, tables and figures, as well as neatness and binding; Referencing techniques and the compilation of a list of sources; Formatting the document, from cover to cover.

A productive writer writes regularly, produces goal-directed written work and enjoys the process. Productive writing addresses the problem of why some people publish with ease and others struggle, and seeks to take the non-productive writer and turn him or her into a prolific one.

Important themes in the book are dealing with writer痴 block, procrastination and making time to write. An array of explanations, research and activities is presented to encourage exploring, thinking, speculating, testing, documenting, questioning and developing authority. Crafting the document itself is just one part of the writing spectrum.

The increasing focus on research and publishing at universities and universities of technology makes this book an important contribution to the available literature on research. Addressing throughput for postgraduate students and output for academic staff, the book is aimed at both these categories.

Productive writing complements two earlier research books by Cecile Badenhorst, Research writing and Dissertation writing, and focuses on important aspects of research that are not covered in those books.

"Writing at Work" is for people who do or will write while on the job whether the writing be an interoffice memo, e-mail, a status report, a lab report, marketing materials, or a letter to a customer. The philosophy behind "Writing at Work" is that such writing needn't be stale and unoriginal but can instead be a sophisticated piece of work that positively reflects the competence of its composer to all who read it. Rather than dwell on picky, little "rules" that you must adhere to when writing, "Writing at Work" focuses on the real rules of grammar and aspects of style that you really need to know in order to write with confidence. Using examples realistically drawn from work settings, "Writing at Work" presents each topic in a manner that is at once accessible and inviting. Spread throughout the text are exercises that provide you with ample opportunity to write, revise, and correct the kinds of written tasks typically encountered at work. You can immediately gauge your progress by checking your work against the answers listed at the end of each chapter.
