My post the other day that got cut off m

My post the other day that got cut off mid-sentence made me think about writing tight. There’s an article in my book Write Fiction Like a Pro (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ERS0L20 if you are interested) about it in which I say it’s a good thing. Which it is. Writers who go on an on and on about details of a story that no on cares about don’t sell many books.
But there’s another way to look at the whole thing. Books are by their nature longer than short stories and, therefore, must contain more details. The thing I’ve learned is that some readers like a lot of details and others don’t and good luck at figuring out who is who and what’s the best way to proceed in a particular story. Yep, good luck all you writers out there, including myself.
