On examination, I'm inclined to believe these are true.
· Watt-Evans' Law of Literary Creation: There is no idea so stupid or hackneyed that a sufficiently talented writer can't get a good story out of it.
· Feist's Corollary: There is no idea so brilliant or original that a sufficiently untalented writer can't screw it up.
· Morrison's Corollary: There is no idea that a sufficiently talented writer has made into a good story that can't become annoying in the sequels.
· Holliday's Corollary: There is no plot so stunningly original that a reviewer can't make it sound hackneyed.
