An author whose bright writing I cheer and revere made this kind comment about WritingRedux.com. He also handed me a new and sparkling set of Key Penmanship Indicators: does it twinkle, sharpen, educate and entrance?
If applied to most reports, websites or press releases, how much would be left? Probably a decent amount could wriggle past ‘educate’, but the twinkle, sharpen and entrance filters?
‘… twinklingly-sharpeningly-educatively-entrancingly bright…’
For other Key Penmanship Indicators see the following inspired by quotations of Henry Williamson, Molly Peacock, Harold Bloom, Anthony Burgess. And similarly, a Key Performance Indicator that could be applied as much to writing as to any other art, a response to Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico.
See also bestellar reviews of Nicolson’s The Mighty Dead: Why Homer Matters and Sea Room, complete with a mosaic of quotations and metaphors.
