Did you ever count the words in
a column of ordinary newspaper
print. There are about two thous
and words in a column. Suppose
you sit down and write a thousand
words on some subject, and then
another thousand on another sub
ject until you have written eight or
nine thousand. Try and see if it is
right easy. Keep that gait up for
a month. Then chase a local item
all over town, and after you have
gotten the facts all right condense
them in a few lines—an hour's work
that can be read in a few seconds.
Do this for a dozen items that seem
insignificant after they are printed,
but which you know are important,
and then have the items criticised
and inaccuracies pointed out to you
when it is too late to correct them.
O yes, it is easy.
