web page content editing and rewritingHow do your visitors  or readers read your text?


Word by word?

Sentences?

Paragraphs?




Time has become a rare and expensive commodity for most people and when they read a piece of text or search for information they want the most concise and complete information in the shortest possible time.


That's what we do for you. We summarize your message to include the main context in the fewest words possible.


Here's an example:


Original writing:

A summary is condensed version of a larger reading.  A summary is not a rewrite of the original piece and does not have to be long nor should it be long.  To write a summary, use your own words to express briefly  the main idea and relevant details of the piece you have read.   Your purpose in writing the summary is to give the basic ideas of the original reading.  What was it about and what did the author want to communicate?

While reading the original work, take note of what or who is the focus and ask the usual questions that reporters use: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?  Using these questions to examine what you are reading can help you to write the summary.

Sometimes, the central idea of the piece is stated in the introduction or first paragraph, and the supporting ideas of this central idea are presented one by one in the following paragraphs. Always read the introductory paragraph thoughtfully and look for a thesis statement.  Finding the thesis statement is like finding a key to a locked door.  Frequently, however, the thesis, or central idea, is implied or suggested.  Thus, you will have to work harder to figure out what the author wants readers to understand. Use any hints that may shed light on the meaning of the piece: pay attention to the title and any headings and to the opening and closing lines of paragraphs.


Summarized version

A summary uses fewer words than the original writing to express an idea or message. To write an effective summary, be concise. Use who? what? when? why? and how? as a guide. Answer these questions clearly.

First read the entire original writing to understand the central idea or concept. This central concept is the focal point of the writing. Sometimes this is clearly stated by the writer. At other times it is implied or hinted at in the first paragraph.
