Words About Writing I Should Tattoo To My Forehead
I love this:
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. But she is absolutely correct here…
Sigh. I’m also realizing that, during this oddly off-kilter semester in which I find myself, I’m not taking anything which requires me to write with any regularity. And it shows in my prose. I need to write again.
