Not if your commits follow some logical steps of the development.
Then a short log message like "Introduced feature A" or "Fixed B that
was caused by C" are actually quite natural, and tell the story of
your development steps.

Frequent commits allow you to record the development phases, and allow
later to easily find when some code was introduced and why.
