Product Description
Charlene Tess, author of Simple Steps to Sentence Sense, is a writer and a grammar teacher who tries to condense her words into succinct phrases, clauses, and sentences that convey her exact meaning while using fewer words.

With practice, anyone can become a better writer. One of the best ways to improve one's writing is to cut extraneous words from essays, letters, emails, or manuscripts.

In fact, Twitter is a great place for people to learn to practice reducing long, convoluted, rambling sentences into 140 character tweets.
But even sentences short enough to be Tweets can be improved upon.

This free exercise allows students to practice reducing 10 sentences into shorter, more concise statements.
