Albert Camus wrote, “Those who write clearly have readers. Those who write obscurely have commentators.”
Indeed, a writer’s application of succinct speech is akin to a mechanic meeting tolerance specifications when building an engine. The writer consults a dictionary and thesaurus, just as a mechanic would reads the gauges and micrometer from his toolbox. Once tolerances check out as within range, the writer, like the mechanic, applies experienced-based finesse in assembling parts in proper sequence. For the enduser, the result is force ― robust prose to move thoughts forward, like controlled combustion to set a driveline in motion.
