I almost never write diaries, and I rarely comment. So, I’m uncomfortable saying this, but: many of you need to get to the point.If you’re unclear on the title, please google it.

If I can offer a couple suggestions:

  • If it doesn’t fit on one screen, it’s probably too long.
  • If it does fit on one screen, it may be too long, anyway. Edit yourself mercilessly.
  • Avoid run-on sentences. Any sentence that won’t fit on one line is probably too long.

This isn’t school, and you don’t get points for length.

Be clear, be informative, be interesting, but also be concise. Because I have the attention span of a gnat.
