Writing resolutions I want to start right now:
- Write every day.
- Write shorter copy.
- Write shorter sentences.
- Trim the fat, even if I’m in love with the fat.
I meant that figuratively, but I do love fat. I’ve fork-stabbed my own husband over a piece of chicken skin.
- Stop using so many parentheses (though I might wait till after New Year’s for that).
- Stop using so many em dashes — which, by the way, are basically the same as parentheses — in the middle of my sentences.
What writing habits do you want to start or get rid of?
