Sticking your head in the sand and dodging constructive criticism just ensures you're going to shout in the wilderness and never get your point out beyond a few thousand people. Study persuasion, dammit. Learn how to write tersely. Get better.

I aspire to get better, condensed writing is the pinnacle of my aspirations. I want to write in a paragraph what others take a whole book to say. But when it comes to imprinting core concept, repetition (and the resulting prioritization) is key to the implanting of information. Just look at how the educational system works.
