I very much enjoyed reading this letter from Roald Dahl to a young writer (in 1980).
In short, he is right. We can all learn from it.
Lawyers, blog writers, journalists. Marvellous!
In the signed letter, the author wrote: “I have read your story. I don’t think it’s bad, but you must stop using too many adjectives. Study Hemingway, particularly his early work and learn how to write short sentences and how to eschew all those beastly adjectives.
