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

comment Story for children without a happy ending
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.
