This challenge is not just for today. Use it every time you think you’ve finished a piece of writing.
- Look at your use of colons and semi-colons.
- Ask yourself if your message would be clearer, your sentences shorter, if you were to simplify the wording and avoid colons and semi-colons.
- Fix as necessary.
Remember that your primary aim is for clarity. Accessibility is greater, the simpler your constructions!
