758 – Littlehampton day out

The Economist had an article about writing non-fiction. the article recommended a number of books and an essay by George Orwell. The essay “Politics and the English Language” is freely available on the Orwell Foundation Website; https://www.orwellfoundation.com/the-orwell-foundation/orwell/essays-and-other-works/politics-and-the-english-language/ makes for a very interesting read.

I thought it surprising that an essay by George Orwell would be freely available. There’s quite a lot on the foundation website. This contrasts with the first book recommendation Style: lessons in clarity and grace by Joseph M Williams and Joseph Bizup, here’s a link to the Google search, the cheapest I can find is £25.00: style: lessons in clarity and grace” the first search came with £66. I was a bit surprised. Orwell would probably have viewed that as bad writing , rephrased as: I was surprised.

I’m reading a kindle book at the moment; Writing to be understood by Anne Janzer. It’s a pretty good read, it’s making me think.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
