Paul Graham’s writing advice

Paul Graham has simple advice on improving your writing: write like you talk.

If you simply manage to write in spoken language, you’ll be ahead of 95% of writers. And it’s so easy to do: just don’t let a sentence through unless it’s the way you’d say it to a friend.

Don’t overthink it or use words you don’t normally use in conversation. Keep it simple. Be direct. Write like you talk.
