也许是我的精,气,神都不足吧,不但自己写不出长的东西,我读一本刊物时,也总是先挑短的看,不论是小说,散文或是其它的文学形式,最后才看长的。
Maybe it is due to a lack of energy,not only I couldn't write anything long but also,in reading a magazine,for instance,I usually choose to read short pieces of writing first,be they fiction,prose or other literary forms,before I work on long ones.

我总觉得,凡是为了非倾吐不可而写的作品,都是充满了真情实感的。

I always believe that all those works are full of true emotions if they are written with irresistible urge to pour out one's feelings.

反之,只是为了写作而写作,如上之为应付编辑朋友,下之为多拿稿费,这类文章大都是尽量地往长里写,结果是即便有一点点的感情,也被冲洗到水分太多,淡而无味的地步。

On the contrary,those who write for the sake of writing,say,to meet the require of one's editor friends,or worse still ,to earn more remuneration.As a result,this kind of works are mostly written as long as possible,and the emotions of writings,if there do embody any,would become diluent.

当由一个人物,一桩事迹,一幅画面而发生的真情实感,向你袭来的时候,它就像一根扎到你心尖上的长针,一阵卷到你面前的怒潮。

When the emotions generated by a character,an event and a scene bombard  you like a pin that pricks in your heart or a tide of angry surging to you.

你只能用最真切,最简练的文字,才能描画出你心尖上的那一阵剧痛和你面前的一刹以前惊惶!

You could only describe the burst of anguish in your heart or the momentary fear with the utmost sincere and succinct language.

我们伟大的祖国,是有写短文的文学传统的。

Our great motherland has literary traditions for short essays.

那部包括上下数千年的《古文观止》,“上起东周,下迄明末,共选辑文章220篇”有几篇是长的?

Have you found many long essays in the history-honored A Treasury of Best Ancient Chinese Prose with its 220 selected articles thousands of years ago in ancient China from the eastern Zhou down till the end of Ming Dynasty?

如杜牧的《阿房宫赋》,韩愈的《祭十二郎文》等等,哪一篇不是短而充满了真情实感?

Aren't the essays in it ,like Du Mu's Rhapsody on Epang Palace,Han Yu's An Elegiac Address to My Nephew Shi'erlang and so on,short yet full of genuine emotions?

今人的巴金的《随感录》,不也是一个实例吗?

Isn't A Collection of Random Thoughts by Ba Jin,a contemporary,a vivid example of short writings?
