  1. I just re-read “On Writing Well” a couple of months ago. I didn’t know until now that Zinsser had passed. I’ve always loved that book, and every time I read it, I pick up on things that I hadn’t before.

    I loved his devotion to clarity, especially the chapter where he talked about rewriting and then included a couple of copyedited pages from the original manuscript, to show how much trimming he’d done. What a a writer, and what a voice. The writing world lost a major talent.
