  1. The Rosenthal link above suggests that every description needs to start with a killer lede, because the first line is all that some people will see. That kind of brevity would be hard even for a short-form writer, much less a novelist.

    Which means authors need help from folks like you. But of course you knew that.

  2. True… “brevity is the soul of wit” and all that. Unfortunately, what I know and what authors are willing to hear can be two very different things. The best of them are quick studies, though.
