Booking Through Thursday - Plain or Pretty?

btt button

Which do you prefer? Lurid, fruity prose, awash in imagery and sensuous textures and colors? Or straight-forward, clean, simple prose?

(You thought I was going to ask something else, didn’t you? Admit it!)

I prefer simple, clear language to flowery and overblown prose. I think good writing can transmit more information more effectively without all the pyrotechnics.
