Clear, concise writing gets read.

Rambling, unprecise, meandering text does not.


How many great ideas drown in alphabet soup?

  1. There is a great scene in A River Runs Through It in which Norman Maclean’s father makes him re-write an essay many times. Each time the father tells him, “half as long.” When Norman has it down to an acceptable length his father simply says, “good, now throw it away.” That scene comes to mind whenever I feel like my writing is getting too long.

  2. I think you are so right, my blog would probably be read alot more if I condense my writing!

  3. Nice bite-sized advice. As a student studying communications and PR, it is always important to remember to write concisely. I especially like the last one. Too often, people write too much, afraid that they are leaving out important stuff. But what’s the point if it contains great information but never gets read!
