Helpful Advice You Received With Regards to Writing

Post by curtis » May 30th, 2016, 6:47 am

The most helpful advice I received came from a journalist. Since I was working as a reporter, he said that I should use verbs that require an object. Active verbs make the story better to read. In addition, he said my writing style should be economical since a story can only take up so much space. Prioritizing information is key. Essentially, active verbs and prioritizing information are essential for a journalist.

What do you mean by verbs that require an object? Can you give some examples? I'm a little grammar challenged.
