Chapter1 & 2 Scared me!
I mean so I think alot when I am reading. It helps me understand the overall concept of what I am trying to understand I guess. Weird okay!
I found the statment that was quoted from the text about "slight rewording produces dramatic result so true." I trend to be a wordy writer which gets me no where except with a bunch of extra inforamtion and unclearness of the overall topic or purpose of what I am writing about.
I also found the Mark Twain, who also had writing experience, once told a young corespondent, "When you catch an adjective, kill it." I found that valuable because it isn't something I think about or consider doing. I write what come to mind and let that be the end of it. I also found it interesting how the text stated the adjectives you will use less modfiers. Which in long-term could lead to an advantage.
Some really helpful information that I thought would even help with my profile and news releases that I have been completing over the weekend was the three questions.
1. Have I said what I meant?
2. Have I put it as concisely as possibele?
3. Have I put things as simply as possible?
You must not write for the readers understanding, but make sure you as a writer have goten your point across that you want them to understand in the end.
I think I am going to consider picking words wisely!
