able to let loose with more words than necessary
Editors say cut, cut, cut, but the words say no, no, no! It's so hard to delete words. I wrote them, so they must be important, right? Wrong. Keep the essentials, but kick the rest.
How do you combat wordiness?
Writing poetry helps me. Poetry gives me practice picking just the right words.
