Learn to Write Better by Typing on Your Smartphone

It’s time to use the principles behind instant messaging and Twitter in order to improve our writing. Any English professor will tell you that the best writing is concise and my realization is that people are most concise when it comes to smartphone just because of it’s limited nature. I’ve been typing my most recent blog posts on my Android phone and it honestly forces me to be concise because it’s an inferior input device when compared to a keyboard. The result is more concise, content driven writing. It’s something I think everyone should try out. The same principle works with a lot of things, such as e-mail and honestly whenever possible we know that it is essential to keep e-mail to the point. The takeaway is to write better by writing on your smartphone.
