Writing Tip of the Week: Cut the Crap

We writers take too long to get to the point.

I’ve written a similar post before about how readers have a short attention span, so you have to grab them right off the bat, deliver your punch, then go away.

We are constantly fighting for their attention, and oftentimes we lose out to work, family, TV shows, you name it. Reading a blog or a book has fallen down on people’s to-do lists. Aside from giving them really good content to draw them in, you HAVE to make your point and make it quick.

I ran across the blog post below and felt it was worth sharing with you all. I hope you look it over and find that when you apply it to your own writing, your blog stats go up and your writing feels smoother.
