Reference #67: The Elements of Style

Be specific, definite, and concrete in your writing. Prefer these qualities over the general, vague, and abstract. You do not need to provide every detail, as that is impossible; what is important, however, is that the significant details are given. Present these with accuracy and vigour, and so allow the reader to imagine themselves within your scene.
