Less is More

Less is more.

 

Shorter

                                                                         is

                             always

                                                                                 better

     because

                                                your

                                                                                          audience

                      might

                                                                        actually

                                                                                                                read

                                    your

                                                                                work.

                                                                                                                                Your entire work.

 

One great sentence

is better than

one great sentence + another good sentence.

The same goes for paragraphs, chapters, characters, plotlines, themes, and your mom. But you often have to write it all out–everything in your brain–to find the best and burn the rest.

Less is more.

So maybe I found a loophole for writing a blog post in like 30 minutes, but if I said any more my point would be moot. This started out longer and I had to cut it down.
