Instant Messengers and Paragraphs

Finding the correct length for an instant message is not always easy.  It all depends on how much you have to say.  The problem is when you have a lot to say you may be tempted to blurt.  The IM version of blurting is a long paragraph of speech.  So how do you curb a blurt?

  1. Delete redundancies
  2. Shorten sentences where possible
  3. Break it up into multiple sends

That should help.
