Photo Quotables: Enrique Jardiel Poncela Apr 15

Some quick inspiration from PhotoQuoto.com:

When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing. ~ Enrique Jardiel Poncela

When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing.
~ Enrique Jardiel Poncela

That goes for both ease of comprehension, and ease of actually saying the line.

In my writing group, often times we’ll come across lines that are easy to read with the eye, but yet trip people up when the lines are read out loud. It’s always a good idea to review whether or not these lines were inherently difficult to say, or were just difficult for that particular reader to say.
