Just Say the Damn Thing: How to Communicate Clearlyand Effectively with Other Humans
"You, and most Pulitzer Prize winning authors don't describe things as clearly as many eight year olds. And clarity is far more important than creativity and the common notion of beauty." It's a claim Chris Maddock makes in his program, Just Say the Damn Thing. He also asserts that the most effective and beautiful writing is the clear communication of an idea. He explains why words are the still the most powerful part of any media, and the easiest to improve to your benefit.
As Maddock says, "Today, we're all writers. Some write books and essays, many more author blogs, emails and tweets. Most could benefit from some improvement."
Just Say the Damn Thing is a lecture on why your words are more vital to your success than ever. It's an explication of what happens when the right, powerful words hit your human brain. And it offers shockingly easy and delightful lessons throughout that will better your banter before you walk out the door.
Chris Maddock is marketing guy and author who lectures and trains at Wizard Academy in Austin, TX - a non-traditional business school whose instructors include business leaders and Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners.
His classes run the gamut: a multi-media writing class that, in the end, will teach you that the media should have little influence on your words; a straight up ad writing class designed to show you precisely what works and why; and an Advanced Wordsmithing class every wanna-be writer should take. Whether you write fiction or Google ads, in Maddock's words, "knowing what about great writing communicates with humans is key."
He lives in Austin, TX with his cactus.
