“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

“It is not uncommon for a leader to win a debate - or even an election - who is intellectually inferior to his opponent but is better able to incite the emotions of the masses.”
Noah Lukeman, The Plot Thickens: 8 Ways to Bring Fiction to Life
