Horsing Around; Short And To The Point.

As mentioned in my “Horsing Around, Or Thinking Outside The Box?” blog, The Melbourne Herald Sun on April 11 had a medium size photo of a young Muslim woman with a small pony and the following words: “ Blind Michigan women Mona Ramouni can’t have a guide dog because her Islamic parents consider dogs unclean. So miniature horse Cali is being trained to help Mona.”
That was it. No more no less. Obviously there was much more to the story than that, but that was all that the paper needed to get the story across. Personally I would have liked more information than that, but never the less, even I concede that that has enough to get the story across.
Now that is an area I perhaps can learn from, as some people think my blogs are too wordy and take to long to get to the point. How about you? Do you have the same problem too? Never use one word when a hundred will do? So in closing, how long does it take you to get to your point? Before or after everyone has been bored to sleep?
