Word Salads

“A jumble of extremely incoherent words and phrases,” often used to describe the mentally ill.

Or one of my blog posts.

Which is why I’m writing for myself today. Although you’re welcome to read along.

If you’re not mindful, gibberish will creep its way into your prose.

The easiest way to muddy up your writing is through lack of clarity.

Which is arguably the most essential element of any piece.

You can dress up a fuzzy idea with as much punch and grace as you like. But if your words throw your readers through a loop, you’re simply putting lipstick on a pig.

Don’t settle for the first idea that springs to mind hoping your readers will figure it out.

Even the slightest bump in comprehension is reason enough to rearrange your words.

An elite writer claims responsibility for any lapses in understanding.

And if mastery is your aspiration, you do too.
