Making an impact with our writing

Nailing down exactly what it is we want to say

A recent interview question I received was, "How do you know when a really long story is ready for publishing? How can you tell if it’s good enough?"

I write primarily non-fiction, and actually had the biggest problem deciding when my shortest book was finished. I worried that I had not included enough information. But after reading through it several times, I realized that the focus of the book was very clear. It was short, sweet and succinct. I knew I needed to leave it alone. My goals in writing the book had been accomplished.

It is important to not only know our subject, but to also be able to nail down exactly what it is we want to say about that subject. Otherwise we could ramble on indefinitely, sharing a great deal of information but end up making far less impact with our writing.
