I have been guilty of these. ( My last post, for instance.) I think most writers have, at some point.
Long, wordy pages, I mean.
We writers LOVE those.
Sometimes we get so carried away with the ‘beauty’ of our 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!)
Yes, Bob, I have been thinking a lot about writing short, punchy stuff rather than drone on and on.
Good advice dg, one of my favourite authors is Raymond Carver and I know his technique involved multiple revisions to pare away more and more of the original words, leaving only those he considered necessary. And he does that so well! He can pack a huge emotional punch in very, very few (short) words!
Thanks, I checked it out, and will start on the creative process now, lols
