063 | If you need to say a lot you need to think more

As I began writing these stories, I focused on using as little words as possible. My writing style has always been… wordy. That was something I disliked. But, it added personality. I know many words, why not use them?

Therefore I recently allowed myself to be more free with my writing. Add some more spontaneity. Still, I dislike it when people need many words to convey their opinion. I sometimes catch myself searching for words and therefore residing to fillers. It’s a waste. Of energy, of time, of attention.

New goal: say what I mean to and be unapologetic about it.

No need to fluff up my opinions. If I’m wrong I’m man enough to admit it as well. Though that’s a future worry.
