Did you know that one of the grading parameters for the SAT essay section is length? The longer, the better; it is pure stupidity. Length is not quality. Nana Susan lived 100 years, she had great grandchildren writing dissertations in grad school, but she knew how to sum up a story in 50 words, a year in a sentence. Once, back when I was little, I made my brother cry. She pulled on my ear and said “Maria, don’t hit your brother. It’ll hurt him, and he’ll hate you.” I was five years old, and I never hit him again.
