"Those of the great writers are like wine and my writings are like water. 'Everybody drinks water.'" - Mark TwainPart of this is a lesson for me: Write simple. You don't have to go all 'elaborate' on me. People like simple. They read simple. Well-written sentence > big words.
Part of it is an encouragement: It's okay. You don't have to write like the greats. After all, Mark Twain didn't, knew it, and was okay with it. And now look - he's one of the greats!
And part of it makes me think Mark Twain was a sell-out. A sort of Justin Bieber, vampire-trend writer. Hey, if they'll buy it...!
So, what do you get out of this quote. Agree? Disagree? Meh?
