Less Wordy (28/02/2012)

A very quick thing today, still about proof reading though. (Something I will move off soon).

I’ve noticed in first drafts I tend to write sentences like this:

It’s one of those things I’ve come to accept.

Yuck! Kind of passive and ugly. Obviously the thing to do is turn it around like this:

I’ve come to accept it

When you’re aware of it, it’s easier to start spotting and changing it.
