This discussion sort of began in the Thesaurus thread, click [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Fan_Fiction_Writers_Resource/b10304/14784695/?40]here[/link] to see what's been mentioned so far. Basically, the question is posed to all readers and writers: Which writing style do you prefer? Short and blunt, or long and decriptive? I'll cast my vote for short and blunt. As I've mentioned in the Thesaurus thread, I find this style of writing to be much stronger in conveying emotion and action. Even though I appreciate the more flowery styles for their cunning use of adjectives, I feel that storylines and feelings (and a point) are washed away by too many words. Now, I have a feeling most of you will prefer the latter style, since there's a proliferation of that style here on the boards. But, you never know! So what do you, fan fiction community members, think?
