Fix Me Friday; Indie Reading Tone Focus

20 Sep

Fix Me Friday

Edit the following paragraph to use as few words as possible without changing the meaning. Remove anything unnecessary.

Every person has something that is special to them. One thing that is special to me is family. My family is special to me because my family is always there for me when I need help. My family is always helping me and that helps me succeed. Another reason that my family is important to me is because I can talk to them. I can tell my family anything. My family is also important to me because we do lots of fun things together.
