Imagine this: a young girl, Sara, pens her first story. It’s filled with elaborate descriptions and intricate words she had just learned. She proudly hands it over to her grandfather. He reads, smiles, and gives her one piece of advice, “Keep it simple, dear.”
Simplicity is the heart of communication.
Understand the core of good writing: plain words.
Adjectives can clutter. Use them sparingly.
Diverse sentence lengths captivate. But short reigns supreme.
Passive voice? Avoid it like the plague.
Now, picture yourself reading an article. It speaks to you. But something feels off. Can it be better? Dive deep.
Make a practice: Rewrite what you read and love.
It’s like Sara returning to her story. She removes complicated words, trims lengthy descriptions, and focuses on the essence. The result? A clearer, more captivating tale.
So embrace simplicity. Refine what you read. Like Sara, you’ll discover the power of straightforward storytelling.
