    I vary between the extremes but I'd say verbose if I had to pick one. As Tallulah said, I had problems writing papers in school because I'd gather too much information and I have to prune it down to make it an acceptable length. Sometimes it's hard to be concise because I feel like I'm omitting something that might be important.

    Particularly annoying when you get the response back that "you should have included X"... when you did include X and pruned it due to arbitrary word counts and something had to go :steam:

    Maybe it's a sort of intellectual arrogance - only I know all this stuff, and how it relates to itself, and it's all important, and you (generic you, I mean) need it made explicit

    I was just thinking about this subject this morning!!!!

    I think it may be an N-P thing. I tend to do the same thing--write too much and then get replies saying that it was "too much" or "wow, you're verbose". I'm looking through the lens of my own preferences--don't believe in TMI and I can read very quickly, so it doesn't seem like too much. I'm always afraid that I'm leaving out information that will lead someone to the wrong conclusion of what I'm trying to communicate.

    I am learning to prune back but it is so hard!

    Most often concise, less often verbose. Always had problems hitting minimum page, number of words requirements for assignments.

    Concise, although I find it easy in an academic setting to drag things out to meet the minimum page requirements.

    I'm an avid online RPer in WoW and some other forums, and I find it harder to be more concise in those settings. I like describing things very carefully so that the scene is very clearly defined.

    I start off writing anything that comes to mind and pare it down. I like my final product to be clear. And I live to edit.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Concise. Unfortunately this writing style isn't compatible with the summative assessments at uni, or my major (English & creative writing). I'm forced to expand on my point, up until the point my essays are at risk of being too diluted and the points I'm trying to address are lost in the verbose. It's a hard balance, to stay focused on the argument and meet the required word count. I'm getting better, though.

    According to those in my creative writing seminar groups, my writing style is "precise yet fluid", as though I take a lot of care in choosing my diction.
    Um, yeah.
