Writing Habits

Seth Godin had an interesting post about some bad habits in his writing, specifically using the word “just” and “sort of” in his writing.  I’m curious if anyone here has noticed what my “bad habits” are while writing on the blog.  I’m trying to cut down on clutter in my posts and would love your help!  I’m hoping it will also help me more clearly communicate both here and in other media types for my ministry.

  1. You are so right. You can always take a sentence and find out how many times you can say the same thing using different words.

    Can’t say that I’ve noticed any bad habits of yours in your writings but I’ll watch going forward. 🙂 I have a bad habit of using the word “just” all the time so have been working on that on my end.

    LaRene is so very right! i.e., I could leave “very” out or “so very”. I’ll follow MomH and look too. T

    I’ve noticed there you don’t use enough references to your wonderful pastor.
