More from C. S. Lewis

“Never use abstract nouns when concrete ones will do. If you mean “More people died” don’t say “Mortality rose.””
“If they won't write the kind of books we like to read we shall have to write them ourselves.”
“What you want is practice, practice, practice. It doesn’t matter what we write (at least this is my view) at our age, so long as we write continually as well as we can.”
