This post is part of the πŸ“– Everybody Writes series.

Today I am reading Chapter 36 of the book Everybody Writes written by Author Ann Handley.

Info! πŸ’¬
The goal of this book Everybody Writes is to guide you in creating ridiculously good content by showing how to write better (or how to hate writing less).

Chapter 36

Avoid the mistakes Markers Make

Author Ann says, too often marketers and other business professionals sacrifice clarity on the atar of sounding professional.

  • Ways by which = Ways
  • Continues to be = Remains
  • In order to = To (especially at the beginning of a sentence)
  • There (are) will be times when = Sometimes, At times
  • Despite the fact that = Although, Though
  • At which time = When
  • In spire of = Despite
  • When it comes to = In, When
  • The majority of = Most
  • A number of = Some, Few, Several, Various (or eliminate entirely)
  • When asked = Asked
  • Leverage (as a verb) = Use (or Put to Use), Harness, Apply,

  • Moving forward = Later, In the future, From now on, Hereafter

Author provided so many examples in the book and is not practical for me to list down here. Book is worth buying for this chapter alone.
