Hello everyone, I would like to discuss about simplicity. Simplicity as in writing grammar and meaning. Simplicity is sophistication. It is also art. Simplicity is a difficult skill. It is not that naïve. It adds clarity. It adds elegance. It adds quality. A true reflection of intelligence and wisdom. A wise person is able to simplify concepts and write well. Complex knowledge and ideas are best communicated in a simplified manner. Write less. Convey more. Simplicity is about succinctness, brevity and clarity. It is a difficult skill to write in a fewer words and less pages to convey complex information, ideas and stories. The antagonism to this is Write more, convey less. A picture is compact yet conveys a thousand words. Try to do that in writing - one sentence, twenty ideas. Varying sentence construction will do. A sentence can be read in many ways if it is cleverly written. Simplicity in writing Simplicity in stringing sentences together is a difficult skill. It is possible to transcend grammatical rules and still make sense. Good knowledge of grammar is necessary, but also practice. Simplicity in meaning Metaphors, similes and analogies are good techniques. Complex character development can be dull. Complex issues can be dull. Complex places and events can be dull. It is ideal to start with fewer or one character. A deep focus on one or two characters will do. A single character can have multiple and subtle personalities. Quality is important. Quantity is not. Complexity is dull. Depth is not. Simplicity has the potential to appeal to multiple audiences. A subtle skill to convey and enlighten with moral significance. Novels with simplicity can stand out. The reader will want to reread and gaze at words of simplicity. After all, and to start a discussion... The more advanced a writer is (and the more simplicity is used), the less reading comprehension skills will be expected. The most struggling reader will never have to work hard to understand a novel so well written with simplicity. Simplicity is a trend that will eventually settle down reading literacy problems. Without simplicity (and if the writer takes it easily), harder reading skills and critical thinking will be necessary. Writing skill (and simplicity) is inversely proportional to reading skill on the same novel. However, good writers themselves already have high level reading skills. Good reading skill leads to better writing skill. Overall, to turn novels into better ones and sell fast, someone has to read harder first and start writing well. The inverse argument: sophisticated texts (with simplicity) demand higher level reading skills. Writing and reading skills are directly proportional.
