5 tips on reducing the number of words
1. Write in a conversational tone, using words the reader understands.
2. Use active voice - who does what - for a clearer style of presenting information.
3. Always look for a shorter word (administration - we or they), or single word to replace a phrase (on a daily basis becomes daily).
4. Avoid jargon by finding an everyday term.
5. Keep sentences (25 words or less) and paragraphs (1-5 sentences) short.
