Beginning in writing

I am starting a study of writing along with a nice text.   It talks about improving your writing by eliminating redundancy, gibberish and extraneous content. When I first started studying the craft of writing, I read Strunk & White. Their Elements of Style was impressive. I still read it often.

Omit needless words. That’s one of the first things that the book said.

Today, I saw something more powerful than a Molotov cocktail. It was a woman on a white scooter stopping a mob and reaching out to hug someone whom she ought to hate. She is an activist. If I ever meet her, I will take her out for veggie burgers.
