Having just passed in my latest newspaper column which several others were kind enough to read and comment on, I think I will practice writing simple sentences.
Here is a simple sentence.
Simple sentences and simple topics.
Puppies and kittens are simple topics.
Social agreements are simple topics.
History is a simple topic ... it never talks back.
I am a fan of the notion that if you can't make it simple, you have yet to grasp your subject. But there is a gap between being a fan and execution -- call it the Murky Effect.
It may be too late for me, but I can practice.
They may not be perfect, but they're a little less murky.
