Brevity Pulls

“I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time.” — Blaise Pascal.
Where do you fall on the brevity/verbosity spectrum?

It is easier to talk at length than to put my thoughts in writing. It is really not the same for me as it is for some people I know who were the opposite or good at both.

Coming from a background or culture, that seldom read or write other than in school, it may explain why writing seems such a hard thing to do especially when it has nothing to do with school work. So it became brief but kind of odd and empty. More like a statement rather than a sentence or paragraph.

Now with this DP, it seems to moving towards verbosity which is defined in the dictionary as “the fact or quality of using more words than needed; wordiness.” Nah, I don’t want to go there.
