Roberts article How to Say Nothing in 500 Words has many exceptional points I have been learning to write and improve my writing for more than twelve years During the last five years when I was to write an essay I would form sentences with an accumulation of necessary but unnecessary information In most cases this information would help the reader further understand the essay Roberts advice on how to avoid repetition in ones essay seemed to catch my eye because he was just stating the palpable The portion of the article that most surprises me is when it talks about making a list of ideas that one comes to when writing a paper and then not using any of them I found the part of the article where Roberts relates to me to be the part on putting more content into a paper and writing the paper would really not be a problem He also relates in his opinion that readers do not like sentences that are wordy I agree that one should pick topics that are the opposite of what they are used to writing on In doing this they are more likely to do much more research on the topic and having more to write on I strongly disagree with Roberts on making sentences short and to the point If sentences were written that way many of the readers would need some additional information to understand the meaning From now on I will take Roberts advice and choose an odd subject to write about when writing I will also sum up and dispose of the trite and conventional points before placing them on to my paper In my papers I will get rid of obvious padding like Roberts states it Also I shall make myself aware of the pat expressions so that my writings will not be creeping with them I will not follow his advice on calling a fool a fool
