Better Writing

Write like you speak, do not try writing with more elegant prose.

## Notes - Create a "banned words" list. These words are the ones we use in casual conversations. - Examples: - Just - That - Already - Actual / Actually - Think - Pretty - Really - To be - Great - Around - A lot - Very - Thing - Much - Unfortunate / fortunate - Nice - Avoid adverbs. - Your text becomes more cluttered and slower to read when you use many of them. - Use conjunctions at the beginning of your sentence. - Write as you speak, do not try writing with more elegant prose. - If you want to write more eloquently, improve the way you speak. ## References - [21 Tactics to Help You Become a Better Writer](https://www.nateliason.com/blog/better-writer)
