RIP William Zinsser

I was so sorry to read of the death of William Zinsser. He wrote a most wonderful, entertaining book, On Writing Well. I always recommended it to my business writing seminars, but it works for everyone who wants to write—or has to. He always advised simplicity: straightforward language, no extraneous words, letting your personality show through your writing. His own witty writing is a joy to read. He wrote many other books, but this one particularly resonated with me. In gratitude.
