As important as what we say, is how we say it.
Words are vessels. They carry meaning, intent, and tone.
We want to select effective, compelling words that flow naturally. Accordingly, we want to minimize low-value, or throwaway, words: words which don’t add much in the way of interest, persuasion, or enticement. They’re the words we see all the time. Common culprits include very, like, so, good, great, best, nice, fun, way, really, some, and feel.
I call these throwaway words. The crows and squirrels of the word world. As much as I love crows and squirrels, I see them routinely throughout the day. I tune them out. These words get tuned out too. Articles (a, an, the) are crows too…pigeons, actually, Though, given their job, you can’t avoid them. Whenever you are able to start a sentence without them, you should.
