Use the fewest number of words possible that still get across what you want to say.

In high school you used to have length requirements in papers which was kind of dumb. In college those went away and it certainly improved my writing. I remember turning in a 5 page paper and getting an A, while others went on and on for 40+ pages. This is literal.

Yea I did those too. When it comes to interwoven topics, every time I tried to make one word, two more take its place. That's not to say I can't eventually get succinct, it just takes time. Time this piece no longer had.
