“On Writing Well”

William Zinsser’s On Writing Well had a deep and long-lasting influence on me in my formative years (that is, my whole life up to yesterday), taught me more about the art and craft of writing than any other source. I was delighted when I ran across this slide show with quotes from this wonderful book, which is still being published and sold. Watching it flooded my mind with memories and tweaked some of my current sloppy habits. Enjoy!

I have been a Catholic priest for nearly fifty years, most of that time serving in parish and college campus ministry. I also have professional degrees in theology and liturgy, as well as institutional management, and continue avidly to explore pastoral theology, Scripture, liturgy, ecumenical and interfaith relations, and spiritual direction. I have a passion for sharing insight into our Christian heritage through teaching, writing, and leading pilgrimages, especially to Early Christian World sites in Turkey. Now actively retired from parish ministry, I live at Nazareth House in Los Angeles.
