Writers on Writing
Our Peer Consultants are always offering up quotes on writing by some of their favorite authors. Here's one of Margaret's favorites:
"One of the really bad things you can do to your writing is to dress up the vocabulary, looking for long words because you’re maybe a little bit ashamed of your short ones. This is like dressing up a household pet in evening clothes. The pet is embarrassed and the person who committed this act of premeditated cuteness should be even more embarrassed."
~Stephen King, On Writing
