Vonnegut’s books are so easy to read. He has been generous with advice to aspiring writers. The one that stuck with me most was ‘pity the readers’. I am guilty of writing for myself and often forgetting the audience. I leave out explicit information that they may need. I have to be careful about that and not assume the reader knows what I know. Like Naipaul he touches on the simplicity of language. Small words. Short sentences.
