I stumbled on an interesting post that (after much discussion about the nature of talent in writing) included a challenge. The challenge issued was to write a description of a photo she provided using ONLY 30 words. One of my worst traits (yes I'm aware of it) is my lack of ability to write concisely. As any of you who have steadfastly read this blog knows, I can go on and on and on about a subject at great length. In fact, I'm certain I was told to get to the point on one of my posts. Well, never let it be said that I would let a challenge go unanswered. I did post a comment on her page with my entry. I will admit however, that trying to be truly creative AND succinct in the same instance was really difficult for me. It highlights an area where I need to work a bit harder, that of concise writing. Okay, I'm admitting it again. I need to go to a "lengthy writers anonymous" meeting.
