Certainty and style

That nothing is certain and everything changes are so self-evident there’s no need to be equivocal when writing.

  1. All statements of certainty should be judged with a critical eye (including this one).
  2. A good reader brings disbelief to the text.
  3. A good writer does not supply what the reader brings.
  4. The writer is certain when nothing is certain.
  5. Certainty becomes shorthand for uncertainty.
