Vonnegut

I came across this article listing Kurt Vonnegut's advice on writing with style while surfing this morning.  It seems like good advice and something I think I had forgotten in my own recent attempts at writing; I got so wrapped up in character and conflict that I forgot to write like myself.

In other words, this is a good read for anybody who has something to write.
Vonnegut's advice, in summary:

1. Find a subject you care about

2. Do not ramble, though

3. Keep it simple

4. Have guts to cut

5. Sound like yourself

6. Say what you mean

7. Pity the readers
