In many circumstances of a writer’s life, we are required to write tight. I don’t know about you, but I am a word-lover. I also have the gift of gab. That gift emerged while I learned the craft of communicating in writing.
In the beginning of my writer’s journey, my critique group often slashed half my pages—so many unnecessary words! Four years passed, since I challenged myself to condense stories into very short versions according to a publisher’s guidelines. The results paid off when they published those stories!
Whether you wish to hone your craft, write for social media blurbs, or devotionals and articles, this is one valuable skill to learn for your career.
Take up the challenge and go practice! I’d love your feedback on how this worksheet helped you.
