Hi,

I need help to simplify this paragraph in order to translate it into my native language. I think I have to read more books :/

One of the best ways to have less clutter in your writing is to simplify it. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be a Spartan and write sparingly like Hemingway. You can use rich language like Jacqueline Carey but apply that language with purpose. While Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Dart contains rich narrative description, the language is appropriate for the time period and always portrays motion. Fluid writing lies at the basis of uncluttered prose. The seven suggestions below will help.

Simplify Your Writing
