when crawford was receiving the feeding instructions for toth shop’s new pet, the petco guy said it simply - don’t overfeed him; he just needs one piece of food a day. i’m referring to our new betta fish and these grainy pellets that are the fish’s food.
there’s a writing lesson in there, too. don’t overfeed your readers. give them one lesson in one piece of writing. because a reader stops paying attention when you give them too much.
and your beautiful message - why you wrote this in the first place - won’t mean as much.
