With all understanding of how every human being believes they are the better, I do appreciate your “above all” view on writing.
That being said, redundancy is key.
Your years of reading have allowed you to “tone” and hone your ability to write. It’s apparent with your grammar and keystroke.
In my best interest, and without you taking offense, allow me to say you need not use the term “succinct” as your prime candidate in a ‘how-to’. Used twice throughout, and then informatively stating how clean and concise your writing may be.. deems a glint of redundancy.
Yes, I rhymed. However ‘succinct’ your story telling may be, your “How I Did It” most definitely is not. You’re obviously a really educated writer, and very fluid intellectual. I’ve only left this comment in an attempt to better due to my first thought being that of “Oh, another child on a pedestal”. After reading you’ve shown me that you’re really not, so go rewrite that “How You Did It” and show everyone what you’re really capable of! You may delete this comment, I would hate for people to read this believing it’s a ‘flame’ or that i’m bashing you. I’m really not. I’m more or less a fan, trying to get my superstar to play hardball.
