  • Sometimes when we write descriptively, we can incorporate too much and our writing can become "wordy". In the end, this makes our writing word soup. It is important to remember that description does not always mean more words, it can simply mean better words.

    Click through the slides below to see how you can avoid wordiness in your writing. This strategy focuses on revising your work and can also be used in all kinds of writing, not just descriptive.

    The next assignment askes you to revise a piece of writing to make it less wordy, then you will go one to read chapter three in To Kill a Mockingbird.
