There is a reason why we should be concise and precise in our writing and all written work, so students such as yourselves, here, at Collin, can gather together to think or ponder how to really avoid wordiness and be concise or definite in your writing and also in all your spoken or verbal communication.  (Learn how to eliminate the deadwood and clutter in your writing and substitute precise and concise language to convey meaning.)
