Editor’s Note: Last week, Muhammad Saleem submitted an article to Copyblogger on how to incorporate brevity into your writing. I decided to break up the article into two parts, and demonstrate that with the use of:
(1) a descriptive headline;
(2) a short anecdote,
(3) a famous quote from Strunk and White, and
(4) a link to another article about Steven King
you can communicate a salient point in only 59 words and still provide additional information via links.
What follows are Muhammad’s techniques and examples of how to say more with fewer words. Enjoy. – Brian
