This Writing Lark…

Kurt Vonnegut, yes him, put forward the following seven rules in his excellent and concise essay on ‘How to write with Style’. In summary:

  1. Find a subject you care about,
  2. Do not ramble, though,
  3. Keep it simple,
  4. Have guts to cut,
  5. Sound like yourself,
  6. Say what you mean,
  7. Pity the readers.

I’ll try to stick to those rules, really really try.
