When it comes to writing, a writer puts in many words a day as a way to exercise the writing muscle. The more she strengthens this muscle, the better writing she produces.
However, when it comes to storytelling, the important thing isn’t how many words the writer can cram in. After all, no one enjoys reading wordy pieces. The lesser the words used to tell a compelling story, the better it reads.
Whilst it’s easy to tell a story using many words, it’s not so with less. Hence, a good writer isn’t someone who churns out lengthy pages of words to tell a story. More time, creativity, and brain cells are needed to create a concise piece of work.
Brevity is priceless in today’s world of short interest and attention span.
Just as in life, less is more.
