A Note on Writing

Nobody has ever approached me for advice on writing, but if anybody did I’d be more than prepared to dish out the following advice that’s sure to make a writer out of anyone:

Master the short form first.

The long form second.

And Egyptian cuneiform third.

Any other way and you’re wet toast hung out to dry.
