Holidays Greetings 2017

 

All of us are writers in one way or anotherAs such, we understand the importance of rewriting and tightening our drafts. We always look for ways to eliminate unnecessary adverbs or adjectives, phrases, and other redundant words in sentences. With this thought in mind, here is my special and somewhat witty holiday greeting for you.

Rough draft:

Wishing you a merry and blessed Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

First rewrite:

Wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Second rewrite:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Third rewrite:

Merry Christmas and more.

Fourth rewrite:

Happy Holidays.

Final draft:

Hi!

—Charles and Laura


Yea, I know; I’ve blogged this greeting before, but it’s still applicable. Happy Holidays y’all.
