Quoteworthy: George Orwell on "Scrupulous Writing"

“A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: 1. What am I trying to say? 2. What words will express it? 3. What image or idiom will make it clearer? 4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect?”

Politics and the English Language, 1946
— George Orwell
