I am not really a writer. It is not my best skill. Most of what I post in this blog is “borrowed” from others. They have great thoughts and ideas, and usually, they are great writers.
One of my faults is wordiness. I write long emails, and often long Facebook posts. Twitter doesn’t always work well for me–I am often counting my characters and trying to figure out what I can abbreviate or reduce to internet shorthand (C U L8r, OMG, etc.)
So I am in awe of those who can say what they need to say in a few words. (To be clear, I can use a just a few words, but then I am usually leaving out something important.) Imagine my surprise and awe when reading A Tweet, a Blog Post, and a Profound Teaching. The author, Jesse Lyn Stoner, explores boiling her blog posts down to their short, central messages. Invariably, these are the length of tweets.
Can you do it?
