Day 331 prompt: Fluffy

Do English teachers still demand a certain
word count for students’ compositions?

I’m sure thorough understanding and thoughtful
arguments are their well-intended missions.

But honestly, instructors must admit that all
those extra words make writers sound so stuffy.

Rewarding written quantity instead of prizing
brevity gives rise to text that’s fluffy.

    brevity gives rise to text that’s fluffy.”
