Today’s quote of the week comes from Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. He had some really good advice for polishing your writing.
“Writing simply means no dependent clauses, no dangling things, no flashbacks, and keeping the subject near the predicate. We throw in as many fresh words we can get away with. Simple, short sentences don’t always work. You have to do tricks with the pacing, alternate long sentences with short, to keep it vital and alive … Virtually every page is a cliffhanger — you’ve got to force them to turn it.” – Dr. Seuss
