Copywriting is part creative, and part science. And here’s where someone who has never formally studied the human brain will tell you a thing I am 99% sure is true.
When we are under pressure, it’s much easier to recall something than it is to create something new.
Writing our own copy puts us under tremendous pressure.
So, what do we do? We recall things.
This is why we need to think before we edit (not before we write, because that’s part of our vomit then edit plan).
Like with all good copywriting, it’s often not ALL about writing new words. It’s about editing.
So, here is the Crisp Copy guide of words to think about scrapping during your edit.

Jay Crisp Crow is a business owner, messy mother, and ex-showgirl who used to sing on the back of monster trucks before having children and getting ‘sensible’. She spent far too many years working in private school communications believing she couldn’t make a living as a writer before having an epiphany and taking her own gig on the road.
She somewhat surprised herself by becoming a multi-award-winning Perth based copywriter and copy coach working with brands and business people around the globe. Building an incredible career based on the art of writing words that sell, Jay has turned her love of stories and people into something she never thought possible – a sustainable, thriving, and profitable business. She regularly teaches, presents, and speaks in Perth and online on everything copy and words.
She will vehemently insist you scrap the word ‘passionate’ from your marketing, will always tell you those pants make you look glorious, and would love to come and speak or teach at your event, yes thanks!
Jazz hands are always included.
