Day 15 of Stay Warm and Write Month

Hi all – the illustrator and writer, Adrian Teal, has given us today’s top tip:

Adrian Teal

A wise man once told me the trick to writing simply is to imagine that you’re trying to impart the information by shouting it at someone standing on the other side of a river. It forces you to be concise, and it’s great advice. Now I’m completely ignoring it, and writing in elaborate, euphuistic, Georgian English.

Adrian illustrates for QI & the national press. He is currently writing and illustrating The GIN LANE GAZETTE, via Unbound. It’s a kind of bawdy 18thC Heat magazine. Support it here:http://www.unbound.co.uk/books/22
