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) and lengthy abstracts 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.

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



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


  1. I still remember one boss, who always used simple sentences instead of complex ones, had told me how difficult it is to be simple. Thank you for sharing this beautiful post🙏💐
