  |   Better Writing Print Friendly and PDF

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to articles and blog posts that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. Some weeks there are more pointers than others.

This week I’m pointing you to lists of data visualization tools and vibrant verbs.

“This collection will provide you with some excellent design tools that are used daily by both agencies and non-professionals.”

From Jerry Jenkins: 195 Powerful Verbs That’ll Spice Up Your Writing

“The point is that good writing is more about well-chosen nouns and powerful verbs than it is about adjectives and adverbs, regardless what you were told as a kid. There’s no quicker win for you and your manuscript than ferreting out and eliminating flabby verbs and replacing them with vibrant ones.”
