    Stolen from someone's signiture, I must admit:

    Writing tips:
    - In terms of writing convoluted sentences, don't.
    - Double entendres will get you in the end.
    - To qualify is to weaken, in most cases.
    - Avoid unnecessary examples; e.g. this one.

    ~Do not put statements in the negative form.
    ~And don't start sentences with a conjunction.
    ~If you reread your work, you will find upon rereading that a great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.
    ~Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
    ~Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all.
    ~De-accession euphemisms.
    ~If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
    ~Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
    ~Last, but not least, avoid cliches like the plague.
