Chisel away the ugly parts, so your message pops and sparkles. Good writing is a conversation with your reader. You sneak into his mind because you want to answer his questions, help him with his struggles, overcome his objections to buying from you. No jargon. No academic rigmarole. No complications. Sometimes you need to use more words to make an emotional connection. To touch, tickle, and dazzle. To connect with your readers, you need to make them feel your words.
It drones like a humming aircon.
