i love you This post is #16 in a series of 50 dedicated to the art and life of writing, in support of the 50 for 50 Project to benefit WriteGirl. If you like it, or if you think it could have been improved by a better writing education for its author, please give generously. And pass it on.

The reason you get tired of going online is not because there is not enough good stuff, there's plenty of it.

You just can't see it because there's too much bad stuff.

Too many people writing too much because they are desperately afraid that if they do not, they will disappear from view. (It's also why there are too many things on a page, too many things dropping down over what's on a page, and too many pages.)

It's okay to write less and to write better. I'm sorry if anything I've ever written (or said, or done) has led you to believe otherwise.

Do less with more, always. And walk away from people who don't.

Me included.
