good writing tips

The religion editor from the local Lubbock paper recently retired and offered some great writing tips in her farewell column.  Among them:  simple and simplistic writing are very different; strive for the former.  Jargon can be used to confuse or enlighten, depending on the audience to whom the writing is directed. And this:   

Clarity in language is directly related to the thinking process. Clarity in understanding ideas relates to our ability to our ability to think logically and to say what we mean.

I encourage you to read the entire column.
