Jordan Peterson's Editing Advice - Deepstash

Jordan Peterson's Editing Advice

  • Make your sentences shorter, eliminating all unnecessary words.  U should cut each sentence by 15-25%.
  • Make sure each word is precisely the right word to express your meaning.  Don't use vocabulary you haven't fully mastered.
  • Read each sentence aloud and listen to how it sounds.  If it sounds awkward, try saying it a different way, then write that down.
