Schreiben wie Hemingway

Als Reporter beim Kansas City Star lernte Ernest Hemingway diese Stilregeln:
  1. Use short sentences.
  2. Use short first paragraphs.
  3. Use vigorous English, not forgetting to strive for smoothness.
  4. Be positive, not negative.
Sein Kommentar: "Those were the best rules I ever learned for the business of writing. I've never forgotten them. No man with any talent, who feels and writes truly about the thing he is trying to say, can fail to write well if he abides with them."
