Reminds me of something attributed to George Bernard Shaw: "I'm sorry
this letter is so long, I didn't have time to make it shorter."

Here's a great quote for new writers. It has the what's-in-it-for-me
hook.

"If the same idea can be expressed in a simple way or in a complex
way, the simple way is better--and, paradoxically, it will typically
lead readers to conclude that the writer is smarter." Bryan Garner,
Garner's Modern American Usage (2003)
