For the Love of Writing

I have been guilty of these. ( I was just seeing it in my last post.) I think most writers at some point of time have been guilty of these.

Long, wordy writings, I mean.

We writers LOVE those.

Sometimes we get so carried away with the beauty of what we are writing, we forget what we were writing about in the first place.

The editor does not, however.

So, when in LOVE (with writing), KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweet!)

Enough said.

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !

And he does that so well! He can pack a huge emotional punch in very, very few (short) words!
