Writing concisely is scary!

Recently I wrote a report. I passed its first draft to a colleague who recommended removing a lot of the text. As I proceeded to discard text I became increasingly scared, “Oh my, I have astonishingly little to say.”

It ended up being a very short report. But every word was informative and necessary – there was no “filler” in it. I was pleased with the end result.

Now, I am determined to discard all text that’s not needed. I will fight my fear of having little to say.
