“So many English teachers shoved complex sentences down my throat that now a simple sentence almost makes my skin crawl.”
That’s Tim Biden, during a Twitter conversation about writing for the web.
He was responding to a tweet Rough Draft host Demian Farnworth shared with a link to his first Copyblogger post: “The Disgustingly Simple Rule for Web Writing That’s Often Hard to Swallow.”
Tim retweeted the link and said, “I hate that he’s right.”
Clueless, as usual, about anything not immediately in front of him, Demian asked, “Why you hate?”
Then Tim dropped that heavy-weight comment above.
