Another book on writing?” And you'd be right. We have oodles of books on the art
of bending a verb and inserting—or not inserting—a comma. Everyone, it seems,
has taken up the mantle, starting with classics you were first assigned in English
101A: The Elements of Style—by William Strunk, Jr., and his subsequently
credited student cum editor and coauthor, E. B. White— and On Writing Well from
that other William, William Zinsser. We have hordes of books on grammar, style, ...

lawyers believe that good writing means only mastering a few simple rules. To
prove that they are good writers, or at least that they care about well-ordered
sentences, many lawyers, including the West Coast associate, point to a tattered

advice on word choice.) Create authentic characters. Again, the use of detail is
crucial. Your readers should be able to visualize the people (or animals) in your
narrative clearly; if your important characters are drawn too thinly, or if they seem
phony or stereotyped, your readers will not fully grasp the meaning of your story.
Show your readers the major characters as you see them by commenting

If you look in any contemporary guide to good writing, you will find similar advice:
Write with clarity and write naturally. The new wrinkle to this age-old advice is the
Internet, which daily affects style in written English whether it is in print or online.
Strunk and White and Zinsser wrote their books before the age of the computer,

traveled from New York to San Francisco. A peddler, Strauss took needles,
