Do you suffer from wordiness, the inclination to use 4 words where 1 would have worked, or a whole paragraph where you only needed on sentence? You may want to join OOOA - or On and On and On Anon. the organization that will help you stifle yourself a bit.
The idea is that we share ideas about how to stuff a sock in it here or talk a little about other things - with as few words as possible. and these . . . will be forbidden! (well, at least for me, since I'm the one who overuses them etc. etc.)

(That's why I write here - so I can do "the wordy thing" They have to come out some time, or my head will explode. ) If I need/want to be concise I can be.
