Orwell and Language

The Ancient linked to Orwell's "Politics and the English Language" in the comments. I've come across it a few times before and each time I realize that my writing could be so much better. I feel especially guilty of pretentious diction.

However, I do think that I'm good on the imagery and avoiding stale metaphors fronts. I mean this is good stuff, no?

It's not like a retarded monkey with a drinking problem could've come up with a plan like that on a cocktail napkin with a crayon.
