Nothing kills a perchance for purple prose better

Posted by Matt on September 25, 2009

Something that you learn from news writing: make every word count. Nothing kills purple prose better than having to distill everything to something pure and direct. It means that, even when writing fiction or something a little bit more stylistic, you know how to do it in the most efficient way possible.

It has also helped me with my editing skills. Huzzah!
