The Daily Prompt asks: Where do you fall on the brevity/verbosity spectrum?
Brevity? Ha, I laugh in your general direction! I have a difficult time corralling my words into short passages. Yesterday I completed an on-line assignment for one class, which was supposed to be 250 words. I came in at 341. My submission comment to the professor: “Can you just treat the extra words as a bonus tweet?” (Clearly I can’t work within the tight confines of Twitter, either.)
I admire writers who can capture their thoughts in clear concise sentences. I’m just not one of them. I’ve tried to be more disciplined. I took a micro fiction workshop which required me to craft a short story in 1200 words or less. At 1200 words, I was just getting warmed up! The end result was a story that ended abruptly and unsatisfactorily. Sigh.
So, dear reader, I apologize for forcing so many words on you. I just don’t know when to stop.
