Write something everyday and you’ll get done. That’s one of the most important advice I received and adopted while doing my dissertation.
It worked! I wrote everyday and before long I had finished my research; published a peer reviewed journal article on the Leadership Challenge; published 2 books on Success Strategies; and am onto my 3rd inspirational book titled GreenLight. Woohoo! Writing (though a rough Uneven and bumpy road), doesn’t have to be complicated. It is a muscle that if used improves. Write here. Write now. Just write. Edit later.
Jessica Stillman wrote How to Radically Improve Your Writing in Under 2 Minutes In summary she recommended:
- Delete the word “that“; which we often use but is unnecessary.
- Delete the words “I think“. Doing so strengthens your sentences.
- Avoid words ending in “ing“.
- Write short sentences. Short paragraphs. Keep paragraphs to less than three sentences. Yea I know’ that‘s hard for some (here goes ‘that’ word again).
- Shrink your opening sentence.
I intend to follow her advice and I hope you do too. So adopt 1, 2, or a few… and improve your writing today.
