This was drilled into me at school with writing assignments.
Although word counts weren’t actually stated (and probably are now with computerised learning), I was forever being told that I ‘waffled on’ when a more concise essay would have sufficed. My marks were usually based on enthusiasm rather than actual content.
I find it ironic that The Powers That Be have gone the other way……….. why use one word when fifty will do and confuses the hell out of everybody as it says absolutely NOTHING!
