Because of time constraints and information overload, people are obligatory to work even harder today to capture and keep the attention of their readers. Online marketers can tell you that simply changing a subject line can more than double their responses to email marketing messages. Stop and think once about how many emails you delete everyday without even looking at them. How many letters do you open and read, yet fail to respond to because you are too busy with other work. Another change is writing that is also related to information overload and time constraints is the shrinking of letter sizes. Now, this does not mean the shrinking of paper sizes, but the actual size of the message. Today’s objective is “the shorter the better”. If you were to take a look at historical letters, say those written by President Lincoln, or books that have information and/or correspondence from the nineteenth century, you would likely be amazed at the elegance and detail of these long letters.
