The text sounds better! It catches the eye! Active verbs add action!

Finding concise wording presents challenges for everyone with inactive verbs making the effort more difficult.

Consider these two statements:

“Eggbert is the guy who is the best pizza maker in Timbuktu!”

Removing the inactive verb, “is” twice creates a far better tagline with fewer words, too!
