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!
