  Tips for Writers by Brad Hyde (June 19, 2007)

The Virtue of Simplicity

William Zinsser, in his book, On Writing Well, has this to say about simplicity: "But the secret of good writing is to strip every sentence to its cleanest components."

He goes on to say that the problems of overly involved writing increase with our levels of education!

So, keep your sentences simple. It's good advice.
