Word Culling

I love the comic strip "Zits." If you aren't one who reads the funnies every morning, you miss out on a ton of marvelous observations these geniuses have on the social condition. Recently, the teenager of the strip explains to his father his generation is used to receiving their information at light speed. He suggests his dad pronounce his words without the vowels.

I imagine some of those receiving my crits feel that's me. I'm becoming a little-hitler with word culling. After reading an author like Robert Parker, I've learned to appreciate the power of understatement. Less IS more. Just ask Jesse Stone.

Write Everyday!
