Things I Hate About Writing

My favorite part: “Long erudite words.  They can be delicious.  Chili peppers can be delicious, too, but a quarter teaspoon is enough.   The snag, for me, is that long erudite words are easier than finding the needed short and crunchy expression to replace them without losing the meaning.” I hate short and crunchy; I love long and erudite.
