Selection

You don’t always have to write about everything. Many things can be understood from their context. Remember that readers are intelligent and can fill in missing information if you give them the chance to. Moreover, filling up every description with facts and useless details can make your writing very heavy. If I say that a man sitting on a veranda was drinking and wiping sweat off his face, I do not need to say that it was hot: the context tells me so. Actually, a good selection of information can make our writing more fluid and easier for the reader. Make a list of all the things you want to say and then learn how to distribute them throughout your text.
