Chillibreeze is a group that makes power point templates among other things. I purchased a few from them. 

Today they sent me an offer of The Plain English Guide. It's quite good. I'd say I could have written it except that I don't know - or didn't know - the names of all the rules I appy when I write to simplify.

So check it out. Interestingly - it's out of India. And they seem to have Plain English down.

One point in the manual is about how Hemmingway was challenged to write a story in six words. He wrote: 

  • For sale: baby shoes. Never used.

Less really can be more, can't it!
