About the Book
Why write in the first place, other than your grocery list? Eric Nicol believes it's the second-most satisfying thing you can do lying down. But it's not enough to want to write. You must need to write. Now, after more than seventy years of scribbling - he wrote for the school newspaper at Lord Byng High School in Vancouver, British Columbia - Eric holds forth on dangling participles, punctuation, and literary jargon. What's more, he answers the burning question: ''''How much should creative writers depend on editors to correct their grammar?'''' Then Eric provides a wide selection of essays to demonstrate how it's done. These include a dramatic demonstration of the chutzpah of a big Tom wild turkey and its harem on a B.C. Gulf Island, the discovery that Eric's one-way-view window in the bathroom has been installed incorrectly, the trials and tribulations of computers and the creative process, and a riposte to the query, ''''Are nipples really necessary on guys?'''' Pure Nicol. Minted in Canada. Priceless!
