"Civilization is a limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessaries"
Unnecessary necessaries in writing annoy me. Having a job which involves contract documents written by non-lawyers means I'm exposed to this writing flaw more frequently than most. I am often guilty of this cluttered writing style, its something I'm working on. There is a way to construct a phrase without needless adjectives, adverbs, or extra verbiage. I'd like to point out a good article which the blogger/author Timothy Ferriss recently recommended to improve writing style. So feel free to nitpick my blog posts. I'll try to proof-read better before hitting "publish" in future.
