Uncategorized Here at BloggingTips.com I generally focus my writing towards non-fiction writers and bloggers. But I am aware that many fiction writers also blog and visit the site.

Uncategorized I’ve recently written about being too wordy in your writing and using a process to improve your writing. “Write tight” has been the rule of thumb and “written in stone” advice for many generations in the writing world.
