- Avoid repetitions in sentences; redundancy distracts the reader and makes him lose interest in further reading.
- Discard clichés from your writing. Cliches in writing refrain you from being original and inventive. (learn how to get rid of clichés in writing )

- Trim down the length of the sentence by cutting down verb phrases, for example, ‘the outcomes are evocative on account of…The outcomes evocate ..’
- Make your context sound clearer; for this, you can transform the noun into a verb, for instance, ‘Peers will team up for the innovation of the latest fashion designing,’ not convincing, ‘peers will team up to innovate the latest fashion designing.’
- Pen down a motivating experience for your readers by keeping your language and words diverse.
- Variety is the spice of life; to add spice to your writing, learn to play with the structure and the length of the sentences. Bring variation and keep your reader engaged!
