Part 5 of Five Simple Steps for Better Writing

People are busy. That explains why the USA Today® format is so popular – readers like information quick and tight.

Like this.

Be easy to read. Write in short sections.

Writing Fix: What To Do

  • Write crisp lists of ideas and bullet points.
  • Use short sentences, paragraphs, and sections.
  • Make sure there’s plenty of white space on your document.
  • Keep paragraph length to five lines or less.
  • Use the breath test. Can you read a sentence or a paragraph in one breath? If the answer is no, then break it into sections.
