The Hulk Summary
This is great writing advice from… I guess it’s both Knut Melvær & Even Westvang as they are both listed as authors on the post.
… channel your inner Hulk voice … and use it to describe whatever you need to get writing on. Hammer down that shift key (caps lock is a cop-out) and type max 4 words for each bullet to capture the core sentiment of what you’re arguing.
- WRITING IS HARD
- YOU THINK TOO MUCH!
- WE HAVE A SOLUTION
- THE HULK SUMMARY!
Perhaps the worst mistake you can make in writing is not getting to the point. So do this first, make sure the point is painfully obvious, then smooth out the writing but don’t lose the clarity.
I’d say you could do this with existing writing too. If you’ve already written something, write a Hulk Summary for it. Is that better than the article itself? Fix it.
