Abstract

George Orwell maintained that one of the keys to good writing was to delete any phrase or sentence of which you are particularly proud. Personally I have my own rule, which is to delete any phrase or sentence which I could imagine Stuart Littlemore saying with a raised eyebrow. However, much though it grieves me to admit it, Orwell definitely had a point about the English language.
