In The Art of Nonfiction, Ayn Rand takes readers step by step through the writing process, providing insightful observations and invaluable techniques along the way. She discusses the psychological aspects of writing and the different roles played by the conscious and unconscious minds. She talks about setting thought and truth down on paper; selecting a subject and theme ("If you have nothing new to say, no matter how brilliantly you can say it, do not do it"); identifying your audience; and navigating the slippery landscape of style ("Clarity and precision are the only absolutes").
