Experienced writers will agree that any written expression that qualifies as vigorous writing, is

characterized by the attribute of being succinct and concise. Sentences should contain no
unnecessary words that stand in the way of the writer’s expression. Similarly paragraphs should
contain no unnecessary sentences that introduce peripheral content into the writing. Good
writing should be economical and streamlined with no unnecessary parts that contribute little to
its intended function. This prescription to be concise however does not imply that the writers
must eliminate detail but does imply that every word should contribute in a significant way to the
message that the writer is trying to convey.
