Fowlers Usage & Abusage..... How does it relate to my work? Do I use abstract, far fetched and romantic words and phrases? Is my writing filled with overlong words and circumlocutions?
I decided to use the short story entitled What Lies Beneath to redraft, following Fowlers Guidelines. The funny thing was....there wasn't any lol
My style of writing is quite simplistic, I don't try to over compliment things. If I want to say "Tom walked into town" I'll just say that.....I wouldn't say "Tom preambulated into the municipality" that's just not me ;o)
So is this a good thing or a bad thing?
