Omit Needless Words - William Strunk Jr.

This quote a été ajouté par malevolarky
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.

My issue with Strunk & White has always been that their idea of concise, to-the point professionalism was the precursor to today's business jargon, which has flooded the vernacular and reached treasured crevices -- fiction, poetry, oratory -- where aesthetic is immeasurably more important than sharpness.

Why does the text move while typing? It is very distracting.
