Mistakes Greeting Card Writers Make Part 6

6. Being Too Literary

Remember to write like you talk. Avoid being too poetic, using
cliché's or going to great pains to be grammatically correct.
Eliminate words like 'whom' or 'alas.' Avoid obscure technical terms
or lengthy words. People just don't talk that way. Think about how
you talk to your best friend. It's better to be casual than formal.
