Advice for writers from Dr. Seuss on his birthday:
Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday, Doc, wherever you are!
“It has often been said there’s so much to be read, you never can cram all those words in your head. So the writer who breeds more words than he needs is making a chore for the reader who reads. That’s why my belief is the briefer the brief is, the greater the sigh of the reader’s relief is. And that’s why your books have such power and strength. You publish with shorth! (Shorth is better than length.)” ― Dr. Seuss

Advice for writers from Dr. Seuss on his birthday:

Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday, Doc, wherever you are!

“It has often been said 
there’s so much to be read, 
you never can cram 
all those words in your head. 

So the writer who breeds 
more words than he needs 
is making a chore 
for the reader who reads. 

That’s why my belief is 
the briefer the brief is, 
the greater the sigh 
of the reader’s relief is. 

And that’s why your books 
have such power and strength. 
You publish with shorth! 
(Shorth is better than length.)” 
― Dr. Seuss
