Tip Orwell’s Rules for Writers (paraphrased)

1. If it’s possible to cut out a word, cut it out.
2. Never use a long word where a short will do.
3. Never use a passive when you can use an active.
4. Avoid foreign and technical words.
5. Never use a metaphor you’ve seen in print.
6. Break these rules to avoid something outlandish.
