The hardest writing advice of all

Editorials and columns are a short form of essay writing, often about complicated, interwoven matters. Though we worked hard to bring new reporting and analysis to our arguments, the pieces still had to fit into a limited space. Being young and earnest, I wrote long, to explain it all. I can still hear Tony saying, as he slashed sentences and paragraphs, “You don’t have to tell them everything you know. You’ll get another crack at it.” — Lisa Schiffren remembering Tony Snow.
