Recently, I had enough free time to explore the WordPress blogosphere, and two things stuck out to me. First, I became keenly aware of a quirk of mine that I constantly battle. Second, I (re)discovered and began to follow a great blog called “The View From my Window.”
In her blog, Laura presents a lot of poetry, photos, and thought-provoking stories. She has inspired me to share my thoughts about my glaring quirk in poem form:
I’m so wordy;
Please forgive me.
I often manage to find a way to express myself in sentences that contain many extra adjectives, phrases, and the like, until the sentences ramble on to become 20 to 30 words long (or even longer) instead of merely…
Two or Three.

This tendency might be an asset in awkward social situations, but maybe not so much in written words, eh? I don’t know. Thanks to those who bear with me and read my ramblings anyway!
What’s your opinion on writing styles? Do you prefer the facts, short and sweet? Or do detailed descriptions tickle your fancy?
