Hi, readers, I’m in a bit of a pickle….. well, actually I’m writing this down so I don’t seem as crazy as I look having a debate with myself!
So I’ve read a fair few books over the years, and with going back to college and learning about creative writing I’m finding myself noticing so much ‘more’ in the books I read. For example; complex sentences and language features but how much is too much? Hey, I’m all for creating an amazing scene with beautiful descriptive words but, is there a limit?
Is the sky just ‘blue’? or is it ‘a dusty, yet steel-blue with a haze of clouds moving lazily across the canvas of the world’…. too much? How about, ‘a mesmerising shade of blue with the odd wisp of cloud’, not enough?? Is this something I’ll learn in time maybe? It’s all rather stressful! It’s funny because I’ll be deep in the world of my favourite book and the little voice in my head is saying “oh, look, that’s a simile,” and “Ha, what a fab metaphor”. I guess that’s the student in me, making an appearance, yay, I’m learning…. right?
Happy learning readers!
