Presentation and Discovery – @execupundit

The clear presentation of an idea is not to be underestimated.

More sage advice from Michael Wade. This advice, for a meeting, reminds me of the Classic Prose style for writing, as per Thomas and Turner:

“…the sentence crystallises the writer’s experience into a timeless and absolute sequence, as if it were a geometric proof. The sentence has a clear direction and a goal. It leads us to that goal, which coincides with its final phrase; it is constructed to telegraph its direction. WE know that it will bring us to its goal, and stop cleanly when it has done.”

Their book Clear and Simple as the Truth is a valuable read for writers. There is also a website: http://classicprose.com/.
