Nietzsche's 10 Rules for Writing with Style (1882)

There’s a bit to get through before the good stuff, but Nietzsche’s 10 Rules for Writing with Style are packed with old fashioned brilliance.

My fav: Rule #5

“The richness of life reveals itself through a richness of gestures. One must learn to feel everything — the length and retarding of sentences, interpunctuations, the choice of words, the pausing, the sequence of arguments — like gestures.”
