Cut the Crap

april 25, 2006

This is good advice for people.  Cut the Crap.  I don't know about you, but I find that people are adding words just for the sake of...adding words.  Maybe it makes them feel as if more words in their writing reflects higher intelligence? Or maybe they are trying to hide their true intentions behind a wall of words?  Whatever it is, I think that people need to reexamine the way that they write and cut out the crap.  I don't mean make writing bland and boring.  I mean try to say more with less words -- and find a decent style when you write.
