Sculpting Words

“It’s amazing what deleting a few sentences can do. I feel like I’m sculpting.” -Kimberly VanderHorst

Have you ever looked closely at a sculpture? The more you carve into it — to a point — the more detail and clarity you get in the sculpture. Isn’t it remarkable how we can do the same with words? Isn’t it crazy how cutting DOWN our words — again, to a point — often clarifies our meaning?

Less is often more, mie amici. Editing is a beautiful thing.
