Grunt writing

I sometimes feel that with “status” comes the permission to weave phrases and the patience reading them requires. If people think you’re having enough authority, they’ll have more patience for you to explain.

For everyone else, we require a sort of grunt writing style. Arguments like “people don’t have time”, “conclusion first”, short sentences, shorter sentences!, be concise and so on, are all super common.

What would we want more? Clarity or simplicity?

I agree that shortform and on topic clarity is a huge helper, but I feel there are countless more times where not treating things like fleeting feed items gives one’s brain the chance to be bright.
