Wonderful piece of advice available from The Guardian – this time about the ordinary art of writing. The writer walks us through various tips and techniques for using writing in ordinary circumstances – like producing a letter of complaint.

As a writer naturally I’m interested in any article along those lines. I came for the advice and stayed for the clarity, which is close to how most readers approach a book. After all, as far as I am concerned the whole point of being a writer is to communicate ideas to readers. No readers, no cry – as it were. Apologies Mr Marley.

The other thing which truly pains me is the thought I write in a vacuum. Words exist to be read, not just to be written. Gulp.
