Here are a few good resources on writing I’ve been accumulating recently:

You probably have heard about the recent Pew Center/National Writing Project survey on technology and writing. It’s worth a look at Pew Report Illustrates Impact of Digital Technologies on Student Writing.

George Orwell on writing is from The Economist. It elaborates and offers some commentary on it, as well. I’m adding it to The Best Writing Advice From Famous Authors.

Advice For Scientists Who Want To Write For The Public is not written by a famous writer, but it’s still good and I’m putting it on the same list for now (until I figure out something different).

Story notes #2 — Begin in the middle fits in the same category — good advice, but not by a famous writer. I’m still putting it on the same list.
