On Prose

As my ability write flowery prose improves, I’m receiving more feedback that I might want to dial it back a notch. As I read the stories that they are commenting on, I can’t help but agree. Especially when I’m writing fantasy stories or science fiction, where the subject matter itself is already kinda ostentatious.

Trying to do too much fancy writing can make a story difficult to read–particularly a longer work.

One recent reviewer put it best, I think.

“Good writing, like good breeding, should not draw attention to itself.”

I love to write. I primarily focus on female characters who become more beautiful and powerful, but I also write just about everything else, from poetry to comedy to horror. I have a number of short stories freely available on writing.com, deviantart.com, and superwomenmania.com.
