Eliminating the Unnecessary that

...include it when:
  1. A time element comes after verb ...he said on Friday that...
  2. Point of sentence comes late ...found that the violin
  3. One or more verbs after main verb ...he thinks that the idea stinks
Read your narrative with and without the that. If it makes sense without...go with that.

Write Every Day!

Regards,
Mac
