Writing Tips: Wordiness – A Contest of Clarity against Ambiguity


Here’s another great tip from our heart to yours this beautiful Monday:

Wordiness is using more (ambiguous) words than necessary to convey meaning in writing. 

Our emphasis today is on the use of weighty ( or ambiguous) words instead of their simpler synonyms. 

Clarity will always win over heavy vocabularies in your reader’s mind, so before you use those words or phrases, always ask yourself, “are there simpler options? ”

Anyway, you need not fear now that we are here. Just let your writing flow anyhow: why bother when we can edit your scripts for you?

Please email us at editor@funmiadebayo.com to order our editing service today. You stand the chance to get your book marketed by our partners (with great publicity fliers) for FREE!!! 

Our other services include Book Cover Design, Ghost Writing, Content Creation, Blog Consulting and more.

Here’s wishing you a very beautiful week and we look forward to hearing from you soon 💕…
