FOWC with Fandango — Concise

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!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
