“When we write we must consider our audience,” says Cynthia. “Americans are busy. They won’t read verbose descriptions. Fewer works, chosen with accuracy gives a greater impact. Attend our kick-off class/meeting for 2017 and hear some super tips on keeping your reader interested by keeping your writing tight.

“Long visits, long stories, long essays, long exhortations, and long prayers, seldom profit those who have to do with them. Life is short. Time is short.…Moments are precious. Learn to condense, abridge, and intensify…In making a statement, lop off branches; stick to the main facts in your case. If you pray, ask for what you believe you will receive, and get through; if you speak, tell your message and hold your peace; if you write, boil down two sentences into one, and three words into two. Always when practicable avoid lengthiness — learn to be short,” says Charles Spurgeon (Sword & Trowel, September 1871).
