    Succinct

    For relatively slow readers like me, too many e-mail correspondents tend to be a bit wordy, verbose, over-stated, lengthy, repetitious, using more words than necessary, and/or including, but not limited to prolixity.  For my part, I try, making every attempt, giving my best effort, to be succinct, brief, concise, non-repetitious, non-redundant, to the point, short and clear, terse, limited in length, and/or non-superfluous.  That's why, before sending any e-mail, formal letter, and/or informal note, I am very, very careful to review my own writing, giving special attention to every word, pondering every phrase, relating each detail to the overall context, to see what should actually, in point of fact, be included in the final draft, and what should be eliminated, edited, reworded, replaced, dropped, improved upon, taken out, gotten rid of, rejected, omitted, consolidated, supplemented, substituted, removed, and/or supplanted.  The wording of this definition is itself a really, really strong, powerful, mighty, forceful indication of just how thoroughly, fully, completely, deeply committed I am to this value.
