At six years old, I was told I was “gabby.” I asked my mom what that meant. I scratched my head.
At college, a professor wrote that I was “too wordy.” What possibly could I cut out?
At 26, my husband said I talked too much. Why in the world?
At 32, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. A bipolar manic symptom is “talking too much, too fast.” Who, me?
At a certain online forum I was accused to suffer from “hypergraphia.” I laughed.
At the present time, I feel proud of myself, sending a writing sample required not to exceed 700 words. I cut it down from 1,200 words to 690.
This is my first attempt at minimal writing.
