Here's what I'm going to do.

A while ago, I asked your preferences in a poll because I've been thinking and thinking about the problems people have with writing long when they mean to write short. Most of the people who responded said they'd prefer a snappy rant on the subject, but many said they'd rather read an earnest attempt to help writers with the issue. I think the post I'm writing is turning out to be a mostly-earnest thing with some snappiness here and there, so I hope that'll do the trick. Anyway, I haven't forgotten about it. I'm leaving for a trip to a warmer climate this week, so it's possible that the post won't be posted until next Tuesday or later. But you will have it.
