Writing a short abstract is especially challenging. It is really easy to ramble on and on, but being concise is a different story.

Word limits and character counts are my present enemy. In what world does 1950 characters equal 400 words? A world in which most words are four-letters long. That isn't a very interesting place, is it?

Thanks! I use it for everything now.. it's just odd and gets people's attention :D
short abstracts are evil. i try to summarize each paragraph into a sentence and then i summarize those sentences if it's too long.

Re:

at first, deleting was fun. then it started to get old.

Re:

then it went extinct, leaving behind millions of typos. these typos were scattered all over the newspapers, television & movie scripts, text books, instruction manuals, e-books, etc. this eventually lead to world chaos, which killed off a bunch of people. the people who survived the chaos went back to the old ways of writing before technology was electronically advanced. most people also gained a greater appreciation of butterflys for some unknown reason.

Re:

no no. without deleting, the world was overwhelmed with content, which choked out all other forms of life -- leaving a rocky sphere overcome with pointless words and no butterflies.
