He watched every minute of the four-hour video I made as if it were a masterpiece. Our national tendency is to inflate and thereby sound important. I assured him that I was welcomed with open arms. Jean Strouse, on the trail of J.

    She smiled a smile that none of us had seen before and said she would get started on the story right away. Keep this up for two months, or three months, or six months. Only then did she begin to glimpse the proper shape of her story and to prepare her mind for confronting the house and its memories. If your sister has a problem with your memoir, she can write her own memoir, and it will be just as valid as yours; nobody has a monopoly on the shared past. Zinsser is survived by their son, John; their daughter, Amy; and four grandchildren.

    The droplets of ink that trickle from your pen serve as oil to grease your rusty brain. Now, suddenly, I was in a landscape where everything was new—every sight and sound and smell. What to use, what to avoid. Guard the message with your life.

This leads him to a straightforward adoption of the axioms of The Elements of Style. Perhaps the writer has switched pronouns in mid-sentence, or has switched tenses, so the reader loses track of who is talking or when the action took place.

Believe in your identity and your opinions. Recoat in only two hours. It was the most uncomfortable ride I ever took—and the best. Then, one day, a page manuscript arrived in the mail.

Perhaps Sentence B is not a logical sequel to Sentence A - the writer, in whose head the connection is clear, has not bothered to provide the missing link. Something I often do in my writing is to bring the story full circle — to strike at the end an echo of a note that was sounded at the beginning.

What member of an insurance or medical plan can decipher the brochure that tells him what his costs and benefits are? Return to the other one later and make it a separate project.

Roosevelt when he tried to convert into English his own government's memos, such as this blackout order of "Such preparations shall be made as will completely obscure all Federal buildings and non-Federal buildings occupied by the Federal government during an air raid for any period of time from visibility by reason of internal or external illumination.

Clutter is the official language used by corporations to hide their mistakes. Cut out the fat.
