Just as elegance in fashion, industrial design or even motorcars is best achieved using the tempered hand of restraint – a ‘less is more’ approach you could say – so should your writing style exhibit a certain directness and lack of baroque embellishments. Unless of course you are the second William Faulkner!

“I arrived and looked around a fair bit and then decided to have a few battles, which I won.”
“I came, I saw, I conquered.”
This is just an example of how a restrained writing hand can produce powerful speech.
