An article on quality writing.
Less is More
When it comes to quality writing the old saying that less is more is very true. If you wish to communicate then your best opportunity to do so is by being as precise and concise as possible.
When an author attempts to pad their work by adding words to make an artificial count rather than making sure that s/he has not blurred the point they risk a failure to communicate.
Any author must be aware of the possibility that her writing will be overwhelmed by excessive verbiage. This is especially true if the author uses obscure words.
I know I’m somewhat guilty of that in the name of my blogspot blog. And with that in mind I’m trying to think of a new name to convey what I want to communicate with my blog which is simply writing given up to the air or cybersphere.
