As I Was Saying

As I Was Saying by G.K. Chesterton

A collection of his essays.   Rather random at that.  Advice about writing mysteries, or as they were termed, shockers. Discussion of wedding ceremonies. Metaphors. Silly language in newspapers.

Can be a surprise when an essay is easily dated by its topical references to politics -- this was published in the 1930s.
