ORWELL’S SIX RULES
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Do not use metaphors that you are use to reading in other texts.
The use of an effective shorter word is better than longer inappropriate
words
If you can remove an extraneous word from a sentence, do so accordingly.
Abstain from the use of the passive tense when the active tense if
available.
Refrain from the use of scientific jargon, and foreign words if you can find
the colloquial equivalent
Break these rules rather than saying anything monstrous.
