Word choice can make the difference between a very impactful statement and a “meh” statement. Word choice doesn’t only entail the words you use but how you use them, and how many you use. Sometimes less is more.
In my writing circles, I’ve always been told that some of my most powerful lines are the short, powerful ones. I could drag them out and make them long, in-depth statements and get to the same message. But the impact would be different.
