Master of the short post

I have decided that I must master the short post. My inspirations are posts like this and this from these famous bloghers, her and her, respectively. Successful short posts create a lasting impression. The most ingenious ones get me thinking during the day because they taught me something. Great writing happens when you can pen just a few words and get your readers’ minds spinning.

See, I really do care.

I want to learn more about that. If anyone knows of any great books or resources let me know. As my insanity seems a permanent life long condition, I may even attempt it again next year.
