Brevity

Brevity edits

Edit.
Reshape.

Trim your prose.

Don’t panic.

The piece simply

must fit.

 

Your dirty trick of

utilizing abundant elongated terminology

 

Bores readers.

 

Strunk’s redundant imperative

“Omit needless words. Omit needless words. Omit needless words.”

Grabs my writer attention

 

Trim it back.

The clock is ticking.

Be brief.

Make it fit.
