Omit the obvious

I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.Mark Twain

When it comes to writing, my basic principle is to use as few words as I possibly can to describe something. vs. My writing style omits the obvious.

It takes lots of skill and time to condense your writing into something that’s short and to the point. vs. Meaningful writing is difficult and takes time to learn.

I have no problem in writing long and winding sentences with tons of unnecessary details. vs. Writing too much is easy.
