More of Noah's books…
“Personally, I am always more impressed by simplicity, clarity; it is the mark of a writer who knows his subject well and is secure enough not to 'lay it on' in the telling. Aim for complexity of thought, not expression.”
Noah Lukeman, The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide To Staying Out of the Rejection Pile

“Subtlety is the mark of confidence and is thus by far the hardest thing for a writer to achieve.”
Noah Lukeman, The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide To Staying Out of the Rejection Pile

“The ultimate message of this book, though, is not that should strive for publication, but that you should become devoted to the craft of writing, for its own sake. Ask yourself what you would do if you knew you would never be published. Would you still write? If you are truly writing for the art of it, the answer will be yes. And then, every word is a victory.”
Noah Lukeman, The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide To Staying Out of the Rejection Pile
