A slight change to my Bee-Picayune columns
Space is becoming more and more of an issue in newspapers these days, and I’ve been asked by the good folks at the Beeville Bee-Picayune to trim my columns before sending. So, from now on I will be submitting columns around 700-750 words.
Call it “less is more”.
Funny thing is, I used to freak out when I’d turn in a 1,400-word feature article and would be asked to slice it in half. Sure, I’d end up cutting some segments that I didn’t want to say goodbye to, but I also found myself amazed at how many needless words I’d used.
