How to Write Short: Word Craft for Fast Times - Roy Peter Clark "I see short writing. I collect it all in my daybook: haikus and sonnets, aphorisms and parables, prayers and insults, bumper sticker slogans and T-shirt rhymes, blurbs, titles, ads, street signs, marginalia, bulleted lists, song lyrics, announcements, propaganda, and names, names, and more names. I can also go new-school: tweets, blog posts, updates on social networks, e-mails, text messages, and more." "You will run into great short writing in the most surprising places, from restaurant menus to rest room walls. Record these in your daybook or snap photo with your cell phone." (chap. 1)
