    • The Reference Toolkit
      • What’s in your toolkit?
      Michelle Leigh Jacobs CARL DIG Workshop April 17, 2009
      • "If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they're happy."
      • -Dorothy Parker
      • Reviewing Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style for Esquire Magazine
      • From the chapter Elementary Principles of Composition:
      • 17. Omit needless words.
      • Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all sentences short, or avoid all detail and treat subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.
      • Many expressions in common use violate this principle.
      • It is as if they were predicting SMS/Text Messaging
    • What I do
