TITLE: Writing Advice for Me AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: October 11, 2012 3:21 PM DESC: ----- BODY: I'm not a big fan of Top Ten lists on the web, unless they come from fellow Hoosier David Letterman. But I do like Number 9 on this list of writing tips:

This advice strikes a chord in me because I struggle to follow it, even when I am writing about it. -----
