I was writing a letter to a friend of mine the last few days. By the end of the first draft it was about 3 pages. I came back to it the next day and it was somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4. Then I noticed it was 4 and left it alone again. I came back a third time planning to shorten it, only to check the page count a little while later to see it had jumped to 6. Why does this happen?! Seriously, words just take up too much space, don’t they? I say exactly what’s on my mind, and try to say it clearly and concisely, but then why are there so many papers full of words?
Here you go Friend. I haven’t seen you in awhile… here’s a book I wrote for you.
That’s not how it’s supposed to go, is it?
