This week's tip from the writing center: If you have an assignment with a word limit, don't focus on that while writing. Just get all your ideas out on the page. Then go back, re-read, and ask yourself what needs to remain and what is unnecessary. For help editing and revising, stop by the Writing Center in Room 136 Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays from 2-3 pm. For more writing tips, follow us on Instagram @swhswritingcenter.
