As a writer and editor, the discipline I practice and teach is Simplicity.

Language is doing its job when the words don’t get in the way of your meaning.
Simplicity is doing its job when the words you use make your meaning shine bright.
Simplicity celebrates the unadorned sentence.
Once you get the idea for your book or your story, the next job you have to tackle is Structure. Simplicity will help you.
It’s easy to get lost in writing. You will get lost in it. Part of your process is to lose yourself in it. But you must find your way back out. Simplicity can be your guide.
Applied simplicity makes everything seem easy. But the work that goes into it is difficult.
Don’t confuse brilliance with complexity. Don’t confuse Simplicity with mediocrity.
