Good recommendations, Nicolas. Simple is best…and often harder. Hemingway was quoted once as saying that he wrote a long letter to his son because he didn’t have time to write a short one! I would just add one point: don’t get attached to your prose. When you do, it’s harder to edit. When I used to write a column for the New York Times, I complained that my editor used a hacksaw. But it taught me valuable lessons. Learn the fine art of objectivity!
