18 year old aspiring writer, dealing with the inevitable feeling of disgust towards 98% of my own work.

comment Does this microfiction provide a slightly surreal sense when describing an ordinary scene?
if a Mages Guild student is caught smoking, they are immediately reprimanded. The college in question could possibly be the one in Winterhold... but I have definetly never heard of a 'Patton Hall'. Perhaps it's some kind of House Telvanni arrangement

I genuinely love this idea. Teach them what life is really like; bring tears to those big, dreaming eyes. Superb.

I love this answer. A few people on this website don't seem to be very concerned with the artistic integrity of their work. Respect.

comment How do you avoid purple prose?
I think you should write a short story in this style. I would buy it.

I think too much emphasis is put on these strict rules, I just find it so sterile when a writer keeps religiously to the "show dont tell" doctrine. Its not enjoyable to read; its just base, contextless and void of artistic substance. None of my favourite writers observe it as fervantly as some of the people on this site- I'd actually prefer purple prose in place of some useless, often irrelavent, totalitarian and arbitrary "law". It's a shame.

I personally enjoy ignoring the purported "rules of writing". Its an existential artform, just write what you want, man. Look at Cormac McCarthy, he doesnt even use quotation marks because his character's voices are so distinctive and strong.
