FIVE DAYS IN MARCH
My evolution from not wanting somebody to hug me or even tap me during a conversation – except family – to initiating the hug to overcome some ridiculous rule, that probably somebody else made for me. The fear of strangers that our mothers make us be. Fathers too.
Hindsight this is.
Does anyone really need or want to know any more? The whole story was told in two sentences. Then why fill the page with detailed filler that’s going to bore the viewer? Reserve your one, two or three liners for one, two or three liners.
If you can describe it in a few sentences, then why go for five hundred or more words, that’s only going to bore the viewer? You’re bored already.
This is hindsight. This is an English way of writing. Many other cultures put the main component of the thought first. Home I go vs. I go home. Mix it up a little, so the writing style isn’t so predictable.
People from different cultures read your stuff. Let them know you care about their reading experience.
