Ten Writing Tips and the Psychology Behind Them

[ Without Bullshit ] Here’s the first three:

  1. Write shorter. Because readers are impatient.
  2. Shorten your sentences. Because long sentences puzzle readers.
  3. Rewrite passive voice. Because passive hides true meaning.

Good tips overall, but I don’t think DISPLAYBLOG readers are impatient. And I don’t think you get easily puzzled by long sentences either. But I do believe every word and every sentence should deserve to be there. Being succinct is a lot more readable than being long winded. The third point is good. The other seven tips are solid, too.
