Check Your Meaning

16. 6. 2014

Carefully read what you have written to make sure your meaning is clear. I was just drafting the first sentence of this tip and I’m glad I checked it. My first draft was, ‘Read what you have written carefully to make sure your meaning is clear.’ A bit of confusion here!

Cut it Out

9. 6. 2014

If you don’t need a word, remove it. If it doesn’t add anything to the meaning, get rid of it. Be ruthless. Often when we write more words, we make it harder for our reader to understand what we really want to say. Our meaning gets lost. When you edit your work (you do edit before you send, don’t you?), check for these things. Your readers will thank you for it.
