About Writing
  • my favorite writing quote
  • Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should
    contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no
    unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a
    drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a
    machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not
    that the writer make all his sentences short, or
    that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects
    only in outline, but that every word tell.
