    Totally agree. Nothing frustrates me more than a written piece that takes ten sentences to communicate something that could be written in two. Good points.

    Couldn’t agree more with you. A Serbian writer once said “When I’m writing I try to keep my thoughts wide and my words tight”. It is difficult to say everything we want with just a few words, but it not impossible. Long and confused text doesn’t help anyone and if the readers don’t understand it, it’s like it doesn’t even exist. On the other side, short texts which are easy to understand always find their way to true readers.

    Have to agree too; and its HARD writing shorter pieces!

    A lot of it is knowing when to stop, at least with me. Unless I’m paying attention I’ve learned the hard way that I combine 3 different topics into one piece that only actually makes sense to me or people exactly like me.

    Usually, its better to just take the time to edit.

    Hi Jodi,
    I agree it can be hard to keep our writing concise, informative and entertaining at once but it’s essential to cut through the content crush.
    Best wishes for the Word Count Blogathon. Let me know if you’d like to swap guest posts.
    Cheers, Caylie
