“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”

This is one of my favorite quotes about writing. It feels like a Yogi Berra quote, but it’s actually Mark Twain.

I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.

Mark Twain

Being efficient with your words is hard but worthwhile. Don’t be like Uncle Colm. 😉
