Write good 2

  • One should never generalize.
  • Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: “I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.”
  • Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
  • Don’t be redundant; don’t use more words than necessary; it’s highly superfluous.
  • It behooves you to avoid archaic expressions.
  • Avoid archaeic spellings too.
  • Understatement is always best.
  • Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
  • One-word sentences? Eliminate. Always!
  • Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
