I distinctly remember the advice I once got from John Bruce (on the blogroll at right) on how to improve my writing skills. In essence, he told me to search for the keywords "Bad Writing" on the web, learn the basic traps, and avoid them.
Once I find that I have read a hundred-thousands words of fiction inside a week, in my spare time, because the writing is just so good that I gobble it up, I tend to listen to what the person has to say.
And I don't have a lot of spare time, either. :-)
So in that spirit, I just read a post on presentations called "Please stop giving (cruddy) presentation"- by David Rogers. Check it out here.
