Random Writing Quote:
“It has often been said / there’s so much to be read, / you never can cram / all those words in your head.
So the writer who breeds / more words than he needs / is making a chore / for the reader who reads.
That's why my belief is / the briefer the brief is, / the greater the sigh / of the reader's relief is.
And that's why your books / have such power and strength. / You publish with shorth! / (Shorth is better than length.)”
