Here’s Why I Try Not to Do This in Writing…

How’s it going? My brother told me I have a knack for doing a strange thing sometimes when I explain stuff.

Let’s get to it.

Sometimes I get to rambling…a lot. I try not to do that here. But my brother told me I…

“Have a knack for saying lots of words that convey almost no information.”

(Or thereabouts.) I even forgot what I was trying to explain to him that prompted him to tell me this.

Anyway, this thing crops up in a couple different ways…

Sometimes I end up trying to add in info because I’m not sure if someone will need it right away to get what I’m talking about…

Or get stuck stringing intro phrases together without moving ahead as I try to get the feel for how to start something.

This is a horrible thing in fiction and copy–readers get lost, prospects get confused, and what-have-ya. It’s bad all around.

People stop reading, which means they never get to the benefits of your product or service and likely won’t buy it.

That’s why I edit a lot of the things that I write before I hit that there Publish button on the right inside the WordPress back office setup.

But sometimes, in real life, the opposite happens to me–I try to edit after words have left my mouth.

How about you? Is this a writerly trait, or am I number one of the one in a million? Drop me a line in the comments–I’d like to hear your thoughts on this.

Tomorrow is March 1st.

Until next time (and month),

Ty
