Blog Post 10: Comparing Strunk and White to Williams

Start on this blog prompt AFTER you finish the Williams book– or at least close to finished with it. Once done with that reading, reflect back on what you wrote for the first prompt concerning Strunk and White’s Elements of Style. To what extent does Joseph Williams’ book Style: Toward Clarity and Grace discuss the elements that you wrote about in your previous blog writing? To what extent do you think that the advice offered by Williams is more useful? To what extent do you find the approach in Strunk and White more effective? Write a 500 or so word blog entry that reflects on these questions.
