Kelvin S. Rubio 10/20/10 Composition 1, Section 075 Journal #2 Professor Petillo Simplicity Writer William Zinsser’s essay “Simplicity” is his criticism toward America writing such cluttered and complicated sentences in English literature. Many time he would complain that people inflate their writing just to sound important. Many people at times would try to write these big words that they don’t even understand themselves so that they sound more mature than they really are; others write all that clutter unintended. Zinsser is no exception. He too has been guilty of the same cluttering and inflation he has solely criticized. The perfect examples are his two rough manuscript he included in the end of his essay. He was amazed on how much clutter he wrote in his essay, and even stated that there could still be more in his essay that could be simplified and it is true. I’ve read his essay several times and I see many sentences that he could simplify, that were either to wordy or contain confusing words.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
