Bad Writing

I’ve been reading a lot of it lately, though less than at the beginning of the year. Since reading this piece, from The Chronicle, published about a week ago, I’ve been thinking a lot about the ideas in it (and equally as much about the criticisms in the comments).

And not just because I violate all of the rules all the time (but partly because of that, no doubt). It’s worth reading; especially if you have any interest in the question of what is (and isn’t) good writing.
