The Manuscript of a black Caucasian
By: Dorothy E. Miller  

Tips on nonfiction, put feeling in your book, be sure your readers feel you, and rounding.

Like this:
    Elizabeth smiled, at the woman who looked scandinavian, her light faded hair, was pulled into a tiny skimpy knot, and her face was clean and shiny, she looked spare, bony, and strong.

      Strange, too, were the deep-piled rug, and the clutter of furniture and pictures on a mahogany bureau, a nest of little tables, and armchair covered with white chinz to match the curtains at the window, pictures on the painted walls. A door open to a sparkling bathroom which was Elizabeth.
