[ To Express, To Reflect, To Give Back ]

You want to write? want to learn it short and quick?

The recent edition of American Scholar magazine published William Zinsser’s succinct instruction on how to simply write well in English. I always look out for good writing habits and this article does a fine job of boiling it down to simple principles. For those bored of reading books on writing skills and sick of struggling to write well, this article should help immensely. It was targeted to international students at Columbia School of Journalism, but I find it applicable to just about everyone with a desire to toy with writing.

It’s really hard to write well because it’s really easy to write garbage.

I just made that sentence up as I type and I would be stunned if nobody ever said that before!!!
