Focus

I wrote a blog post a few days ago that came out to 900 words long. It was saying what I wanted to say, but was off somehow.

So I went back to what I learned in school: focus the message. What is the point? If this post was one sentence, what would it say?

With that knowledge I deleted the second half of the post. Over 550 of the 900 words. Gone. And the post was much better.

Sometimes deleting paragraphs makes your writing better than adding them.
