Success

Omit needless words

A gentle pruning, just enough to let your flowers see the sun.

Rare Success

The fortunate fall of a phrase

Sometimes every word drops into place with the ivory click of fortunate dice. This won't increase Potential above 45, though.


Failure

Little improvement

Sometimes you feel like a driver trying to turn a hackney-carriage in a crowded street, encumbered by shouts and jeers and disrespectful horses.
