Anyway, let's get to the point. Haha, get what I did there?
This idea was partially inspired by The Catcher in the Rye. I felt pained in reading Holden's random ramblings. In a myriad of instances while reading the book, I internally yelled at him to just get to the point. Of course details matter and a certain degree of fluff is good, but too much fluff detracts from the meaning of the piece. Becoming more conscious of this issue, I noticed that I frequently spoke and even wrote in a similar manner. Therefore, I have decided to try being more concise.
In writing this post, I've realized just how much fluff I add. I actually wish that y'alls were able to see my writing process to understand how much fluff I've cut out. Well, at least I'm trying, right?
By becoming more concise, I'll be able to better organize my thoughts (I'm such a scatter-brained person sometimes). You guys also won't have to go through the trouble of reading a giant post to see what I'm trying to get at.
Isn't it kind of ironic? It took me a whole post to explain how I'm going to be concise. I better work on that!
Have you guys read The Catcher in the Rye? What were your opinions on the book? Do you experience the same issues with being concise as I do?
Until tomorrow! :D
