How can I improve word economy?

Five of the best ways:
1) Frontlines
2) Clarity (stop breathing weird as much as possible, breathe on beat in natural places, etc..). This maximizes words you speak to words flowed ratio. This is straight up Ross Smith advice.
3) Practice (and re-dos)
4) Be ruthless in underlining the cards on your blocks
5) Focus on smart arguments

——————————————

Here are a couple others:
1) Identify your own personal filler words….and stop it.
2) The place where this potentially plays the most important role is 1ar in terms of getting spread out.
3) Potentially do rebuttal re-dos where you gradually decrease times for the key speech you are talking about in 30 second increments.
