Wisdom on Wednesday: Less is More

I can be wordy. My blog posts will attest to that. But as this post will show, I've been working on that, both on my blog and in my manuscripts.

Don't use a paragraph when a sentence will do.

Less is more.

Happy June!


  1. Bwahaha! Very lovely demonstration of an important point. I suffer from wordiness as well (as my blog posts show). Sigh. Less is more. Got it.

  2. I agree with less is more - one reason I'm still editing my manuscript - to delete what I don't really (really) need.

  3. Totally agree--well said in a short space-ha!

  4. So true. I learned it the hard way and had to cut 20,000 words.

  5. Great adage for a pb writer, and more time to write too :)

  6. Good luck with the editing, Peaches!

    Christina, thanks! ;-)

    Catherine, YES, it is SO TRUE for a PB writer! Less is definitely, definitely more in that case!
