Where There Is a Will, There Is No Way

Why is it that authors continue to use the future tense in every article on the net? If looking at it from that standpoint, then nothing is really happening in the present moment. This will happen now; that will happen later. The truth is that articles sound much more professional when you leave the word “will” out of it. When you are writing your article and the word “will” pops up, take it out and make the sentence present tense. Here is how:

Example: This will aggravate me every time I edit an article.
Fix: This aggravates me every time I edit an article.

See, that was not so hard. If you are trying to fill your word count, then try this example:

Example: This will look so good the next time I edit an article.
Fix: This is going to look so good the next time I edit an article.

Now, you have more words to fill in your word count, and you did not use the word “will.” Start accepting those articles now, and remember what you learned here!
