The greater interestingness of art over another does not rest on the greater number of things that stylistic decisions in that work allow us to attend to, but rather on the intensity and authority and wisdom of that attention, however narrow its focus.

Pg35-36, On Style by Susan Sontag

Note to self: It’s much more important to focus on one thing that you want to say than to try to do so many; thereby lacking in intensity. It’s not about trying to be ‘fanciful’ but making decisions so that only that point stood out clearly.
