Tips for streamlining your writing from the Word Wise blog

Shorter is almost always better when you write.

Check out "One (Isn't) the Loneliest Number," a list of phrases that can be replaced with a single word, from Dan Santow's Word Wise blog.

It'll teach you to use words like "now" instead of "at the present time" or "at this point in time."
