Writing

Elements of StyleThe Pen Book Festival ended a week ago. Time to think about words and writing. To me, they bring truth alive. But in order to do it, you have to have a good writer who is not only or even at all a well-educated person. He has to feel and see the world in which we live in. He has to be beyond the apparences. However they are some rules that are worth knowing and in America there is a little book, it’s how students call it in college, that provide them concisely and cleverly : The Elements of Style. Notice that EB White wrote one of the most accurate and little book -again;)- on NYC that is still relevant : Here is New York. First sentence : “…New York will bestow the gift of loneliness and the gift of privacy.“

Highly recommended : simple and so clever.
