Brevity

I'm happy to say I've completed my own blogging challenge - to blog ten posts in a row with one word titles. You might think I'm just being a bit dumb, but writing short copy is harder than writing long copy. And writing short titles, which either sum up or accurately preface what you're writing is even harder. It's a good writing exercise to set yourself, but I'm tired of it now.

That is so true. I remember in Uni one of the lecturers using a quote (but I cannot remember who the quote was from) saying that, he had not time to write a short letter, so he was writing a long account instead. Prize for whoever can find that quote, I thought it was one of the Romantics?

Weird but true.Why use 3 words when you can use 63...am I rambling...lol
