You don’t need complex sentences to express complex ideas.

That’s the statement by PG. I believe he is right and I like to believe he is right. No, not because he is the founder of YC but because I personally find it very hard to write in a way writing is suppose to be.

In the past, I tried to write in a more “professional” way, using more words, checking for this and that, I even ask my friends to review and edit it for me. It never work, I did not enjoy it. It’s no fun at all.

Writing in my broken “Angmo” is more fun. Simply because this is the way I talk.

You don’t need complex sentences to express complex ideas. When specialists in some abstruse topic talk to one another about ideas in their field, they don’t use sentences any more complex than they do when talking about what to have for lunch. They use different words, certainly. But even those they use no more than necessary. And in my experience, the harder the subject, the more informally experts speak. Partly, I think, because they have less to prove, and partly because the harder the ideas you’re talking about, the less you can afford to let language get in the way.
