It takes skill to K.I.S.S.

In Apathy, unfeelingly , I like what a fellow blogger, K.K. commented. “Short and crisp!” Not that it’s like crunchy potato chips, but it reminds one that it takes skill to K.I.S.S. (keep it short and sweet)!

I used to summarize CVs ( 1-4 pages long) to fit them into conferences’ program brochures. They were good exercises for me.

And if one can carry forth a point in 50 words instead of 500 words, I would prefer the shorter one.

I admire how some poets can describe bountifully ( if you can guess who has this name!) in a few words!

Practise K.i.s.s.-ing!


A writer should have the precision of a poet and the imagination of a scientist. – Vladimir Nabokov

  1. A lovely post indeed. My experience is that people don’t have time and willingness to read a longer text. I liked your word KISSing. Well done!!!
