Just as an artist attempts to represent and interpret reality through paint, brush and canvas, the writer seeks to create meaning through words.
Just as the artist must have an understanding of form, perspective, light and colour and the strengths and weaknesses of various paint mediums, if he or she wishes to create a meaningful representation that can be shared with others, the word artist must also have an appreciation of the rules and principles that underwrite the art of writing.
A writer must have above all an understanding of the tools and techniques that release the power of the written word that breathe life and vitality into expression.

Grammar On One Hand is not so much a guide to English grammar but a device or suite of tools that employs a basic knowledge of grammar and sentence construction to release the hidden power of words to make expression more effective.

In part one of this presentation, The Basic Idea, we examine the five basic building blocks of English through the metaphor of the human hand.

In part two of the presentation, The Building Blocks of Language, we develop this understanding by examining each element in more detail. We examine how the power of expression can be improved through the intelligent application of basic principles.

Having completed an overview of the elements of Grammar on One Hand, in part three, Releasing the Creative Power of Sentences, we move on to consider the role and importance of sentence form in controlling tone and other qualities of written communication.

In part four, Modelling Experience, we look at the writing process from the view point of psychology and the role it plays in creating our models of understanding. We look at the problems associated with creating and sharing models of experience and the psychology of concept formation.

In part five, we bring together the lessons from parts 1 to 4 and elaborate on these in 10 Commandments for good writers. This section presents 10 important secrets to good writing, that if followed intelligently, can help strengthen your own personal writing style and help you to appreciate the writing styles of others more fully.

The last section of Grammar On One Hand – A tool Kit For writers , Gym Workout, provides some practical examples of how writing tone can be improved through the intelligent application of the principles taught in Grammar On One Hand – A tool Kit For Writers.
