Never use a long word where a short one will do.
If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
Never use the passive voice where you can use the active voice.
Never use jargon if you can think of an everyday equivalent.
In addition, Elmore Leonard said "If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it".
