advice for writers

Alberta author Deb Elkink called my attention to the following challenging & inspiring quotation.
"To say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that's the whole art and joy of words."
(C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces)

Hopefully we'll all do that in our writing today.
