If It Doesn’t Need to Be Said…

One of the hallmarks of good writing (at least in this century) is “tight” writing. This is writing that doesn’t belabor a point, that says what needs to be said succinctly and moves on.

Sometimes, tightening your writing just justs down to your word choices. This article highlights some trouble spots for students, but most adults could benefit from reviewing this advice, too.

Writing more isn’t always saying more. Say what you mean in precisely the language necessary, and let it go at that. You’ll find your writing stronger and better received.
