I tried to read an archery blog. I failed. It wasn’t that the writer isn’t a really great archer. On top of being a first class shooter, he can write. He does just that in the article – he writes and writes and writes and writes some more.
It was exhausting. No doubt the article is filled with sagely advice all to make me a better archer. But, 6004 words?
I’m going on record, so there is no doubt I read a lot and have read a lot. Much of what I’ve read would give you a migraine. From medical textbooks, law books, business books, and books on accounting I’ve read all sorts of books not considered a best seller. I’ve read bona fide medical, law and accounting journals. Heck, I’ve even published my own manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals. Some of the most painful reading was proofing technical manuals on medical equipment. The point is – I read.
But, 6004 words on a blog site about archery? It almost made technical manuals seem like fun. One article, 6004 epic words, on one topic. I couldn’t finish it. Yet, another flop it the pursuit of perfect placement of an arrow.
(Excluded these words the above is 199 words. Readable without necessitating a nap.)
