Few and Plain Is Best
Some writing advice from John Ruskin (1819-1900). Ruskin was a writer and artist, but is best known as an art critic during the Victorian Era. His words here are both wise and pithy.
“Say all you have to say in the fewest possible words, or your reader will be sure to skip them and in the plainest possible words or he will certainly misunderstand them. ” ~ John Ruskin
