Week 2, Day 5: What is good writing?

Last week, we focused on why we write and developed our identities as writers.  We discussed purpose, audience, genre, and exigence.

This week, we are moving from writing purposes to writing products, from “why do we write?” to “what is good writing?”  Once again, we look to Zinsser to kick start our debate. Is good writing simplified and uncluttered (without being simplistic)?  Is it jargon free?
