What matters most in good writing

Clarity, brevity, simplicity, and humanity.

So says William Zinsser, the author of the classic bestseller On Writing Well. Which I loved for its approach to teaching the craft and art of writing.

And which is why I am now savouring Writing Places, another wonderful book that possesses, according to one reviewer, all the qualities that Zinsser believes matter most in good writing: clarity, brevity, simplicity, and humanity.
