How to Write Badly Well

My recent post about how much I enjoy sifting through this blogs spam made me think about a fantastic and telling blog that I found.   This spam seemed to follow the rule “Always Use a Thesaurus.”  What I thought was interesting about this blog was the way reading it made me feel like I was becoming a better writer.  Or at least, a less bad one.  It works as a pretty effective list of things not to do in your writing, and, by offering humorous examples of each, does a pretty good job of ensuring you won’t soon forget them.  It’s definitely worth a look.
