Writing, Vonnegut style

While looking aroung WordPress this morning, I came across a link on The Whole Garden will Bow to a 1999 piece by Kurt Vonnegut about writing.  I had seen this before, but I had forgotten about it.  It is very clear advice that I think I want to share with my students.  Some of them, at least, would appreciate it.

Many of my students aspire to write really well in English.  They are journalism or broadcast journalism majors; they need to be able to write.  It has been very gratifying to see some of them really “get” writing in English.  It hasn’t been easy, but they have done it.  I can’t wait to see what they are producing by December!
