Hi, This is kind of a pop quiz... I have a couple of paragraphs that just feel like lead. Technically they get across what they need to but they're not exactly bundles of fun. Frankly I hate them. I've had plenty of other cases where I can massage things into something I like, but these last few just won't go. Would you: a) Keep at it, tweaking away. They'll bend to my mighty linguistic skills (ha) eventually. b) Rewrite them from scratch, deliberately using a different structure. c) Cut them completely, pretend they were never there, then see if I actually needed them. d) Don't worry about the odd paragraph that bugs me. e) None of the above, I would _________________________ I'm tempted by d) but these are often important paragraphs in my view, and it seems like a slippery slope.
