My husband took me out for breakfast this morning and, since we were there without children, we each took one of the small daily newspapers so as not to have to communicate with one another. (Just kidding…mostly.) After whizzing through the so-not-the-NYT crossword, I scanned my horoscope.
VIRGO: You may offer your advice free of charge, but the other person still pays for it with his or her attention. You have something powerful to impart, but do it in only a sentence or two. Brief is best.
Hmm…what kind of writing advice can be given in just one sentence?

How ’bout you? One sentence (even if you’re not a Virgo).
