I would like to take this time and offer some much needed advise in cleaning up your writing right now!
The Following are very important tips to advancing in your writing endeavors.
1. Avoid cliches like the plague: You can’t omit them altogether — and you shouldn’t try — but take care when recasting a tired word or phrase into something fresh and new. When calling attention to hypocrisy, instead of reciting the cliche “This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black,” you could write, “Keywords: pot, kettle, black.” You can also play with words, referring to an especially distraught drama queen as a trauma queen.
2. Avoid filler phrases: Delete content like “be that as it may,” “to all intents and purposes,” and “in the final analysis.” These prolix protrusions pop up naturally in speech to bridge a gap between one thought and the next, but although you’re forgiven for including them in a first draft, there’s no excuse for letting them pass inspection when you review your writing or edit someone else’s.
3. Avoid verbosity: Watch out for wordy phrases like “in order to,” or unnecessary word phrases like currently and “that is,” and/or smothered verbs (constructions in which a noun can be transformed into a verb, such as “offered an indication” when indicate will do.)
4. Avoid redundancies and repetition and saying the same thing twice: Edit and edit your work some more…also avoid repetition like your life depends on it. — common, like filler phrases, to spoken language but inimical to good writing — like “actual fact” and “completely finished.”
