LRW and word count

Postby always206 » Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:39 pm

Is it just me, or is it super hard to be concise? I feel like all the engineer majors are able to write perfect for LRW. Political Science/English = habits.

I've becoming significantly less wordy in my writing and I still always hit the upper word limit. If I'm only a little over, I can just go through sentence by sentence and eliminate words here and there. If I am way over, it's usually axing whole sentences. That always hurts.

It's better to have to cut than to have to add.

What is your word count on the assignment?

Just curious
