Through various Web sites, like The Literature Network, I have found lots of classic texts in the public domain. I know: You don't like reading online; that's why all you can handle are my tiny precious blog posts. But if you write, and if you write with a computer, you may be interested in the following activity. Read lots of these texts--George Orwell essays, for instance. Then, follow my lead and copy and paste them into Microsoft Word. Then, change their fonts numerous times, so you can see classically crafted sentences the same way you see yours--in the same medium. In different sizes and shapes. Different line spacings. Different colors. This both makes the texts more accessible, and helps one realizethese words were written by actual humans. Try it the next time you feel like you can't write. You'll see that while Mr. Orwell is a marvel, you may have in fact written a line nearly as clear as he once did. Or, hell, that you're eternally inferior.
