Clutter and writing-Part 2

“Clutter is the disease of American writing. We are a society strangling in unnecessary words, circular constructions, pompous frills and meaningless jargon.”

William Zinsser

Part 2 of decluttering is cleaning up your own writing. Now that the closet and files are clear it's time to look at your pages. Look at this list on removing word clutter. Can you find unnecessary words and meaningless jargon in your work? One reason I love poetry so much is the lack of word clutter. Today write a poem on clutter and enjoy your Sunday and your clutter-free workspace. Now get to work.
