I believe it

From Mark Vonnegut’s introduction to Armageddon in Retrospect by his father Kurt Vonnegut:
“If you can’t write clearly, you probably don’t think nearly as well as you think you do,” he told me. If you ever think something he wrote was sloppy, you might be right, but just to be sure, read it again.

A year ago on TTaT: Pink!; Awe, is that the right word?


  1. It's so true. Hence all the blogging, right? We're just trying to get our thoughts in order.

  2. I think all the writing I do makes me notice more when other people's thoughts are in more disarray than they realize.
