KEEP IT SHORT
I, admittedly, suck at this rule. However, it’s better to keep your text messages and concise instead of lengthy like epic novels. Imagine you have a character limit and learn how to say as much as possible in the fewest of words. Once you get this down pat, watching your tone (see page 3) will be a piece of cake.
If you can’t manage these simple ways of stepping your text messaging game up, just pick up the phone. You may be better off!
