Two damn good writing tips by Mark Twain

Mark Twain

“Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”

“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” 

It’s funny because it’s so very true.
