How to frustrate buzzword bingo players. Simply write. How to rescue the message from an avalanche of jargon. Simply write. Writing simply is difficult. It doesn't mean simple-minded. It means distinct, lucid, understandable, believable, dynamic, effective and deft. I apply the principles of writing simply to the following:

  • Newsletters
  • Annual reports
  • Advertising copywriting
  • Scripts
  • Corporate identity manuals
  • Brochures and other marketing collateral
  • Direct mail campaigns
  • Social media
  • Websites
  • Blogs
  • Feature articles, press releases

Making it all the way to clarity starts with chaos. The chaos of lots of ideas, both good and bad, data dumps, competing agendas, complicated needs, too much information, too little information—it's all very much part of the creative process. It's daunting, but worth it, when you get to the other side with a message that meets your goals.

"To write simply is as difficult as to be good."
