Joy of Simplicity

A recent fad of writing seems to be posting long-winded sentences going round the bush with enormous mile-long words conveying whatever they want to convey.

The joys and advantages of writing, simply, clearly and succinctly, seem to be on the wane. It may just be a fad of the moment and I hope it is, but it’s quite annoying sometimes having to try and decipher an article on an interesting topic written in such an abstract way as to give technical papers a run for their money.

Having said that, looking at my posts, I can’t say I have a hand at simplistic writing either 🙂
