Original question from Quora:

What are some tips for writing “tight”?

I’m trying to learn how to write more concisely, and I could use the practice. I’d appreciate any tips or sites that anyone could refer me to. Thanks!

My Answer:

Edit the hell out of your own work. Remove words. Remove more words. Remove more words.

I edited my entire book Creative Genius probably seven times. Each time got tighter.

Write something that exemplifies a tight style. Reference against that.

Also, remove more words.
