Just six sentences…

It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what other men say in whole books – what other men do not say in whole books. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

More on brevity so I’ll be brief. How seriously do you take your editing? Is your work lean and polished or do you tend to ramble? You can be the best writer but if you don’t know when your brilliant words need to go you fail as an editor.

Today think you can write a whole story it six sentences? give it a try. Complete details for submitting. Now get back to work!
