- Develop idea for a post.
- Write it.
- Edit it -- cutting as many words as possible.
- Edit again. Cut more.
I have the attention span of a gnat. And I'm not alone. Reread everything you write this week -- from stories to emails -- and cut *words you don't really need.
*Example: I had cut the words you don't really need. I didn't need the in that sentence. It's a little word, but every word you cut makes a difference.
