NaNoWriMo Tip #12: Harness the Power of Simple Words

By Maryann Yin 

When a tight deadline looms, succinct writing may be the best way to reach one’s goal. NaNoWriMo participants must keep this in mind as they continue to work on their projects.

The animated video above features a TED-Ed lesson called “The Power of Simple Words.” Educator Terin Izil offers this bit of sage wisdom: “when it comes to words, bigger isn’t always better.”

This is our twelfth NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. To help GalleyCat readers take on the challenge of writing a draft for a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, we will be offering advice throughout the entire month.
