Making your writing better sounds exotic.
Everyone wants to do it, but most people don’t know how.
Here is a technique I use to write sharper than a sword.
The trick is to remove redundancies.
Most of us, when writing, tend to assume that our audience doesn’t know anything.
While that’s a good way to approach your work, you should still wipe out self-explanatory words.
“Let me combine them together.“
Your audience knows what combine means, so there’s no need to add together.
“In my personal opinion“
The words “my” & “personal” are doing a grave disservice to your writing because they don’t add a single grain of clarity.
If it’s an opinion, that automatically means it’s yours and personal.
A well-written piece online isn’t the one that gets bogged down due to irrelevant factors like word count.
It’s the one that quenches thirst for content by being just enough. Not a tad bit more or a tad bit less.
And remember, writing is a craft. A subjective artform.
So you need to know the rules before you break them.
Break the rules but never ever break the flow.
On that note, here’s a question for you.
