Why edit? A singer-songwriter’s reply

What can a songwriter teach you about financial communications? Plenty.

Here’s what singer-songwriter Josh Ritter says:

To edit yourself isn’t an admission of lack of talent; it’s sticking up for that talent by taking the time to make sure that everyone can understand what you’re trying to say.

I agree. Good editing will make your writing more reader-friendly.

Ritter shared his wisdom in “Seeing Red: To Write Is to Edit” in The Wall Street Journal.
