Over the last few years I have been learning: You do not need big words to say something great. If the idea is important; it is just as important to say it with clear and simple words that all can understand.
The Up-Goer Five text editor is the perfect way practice this.
The challenge is worth your while.
- Can the same idea be stated more simply? The more work you put into making the words simple, the more work the reader can put into the idea.
- Are the less common words appropriate for your audience? The more time you invest in the selection of every word, the more value your reader will receive.
