I think this is too similar to Which variant of English should I use when my target audience is the world?, personally.

comment “…and the fire from the stove engulfed him” or “jumped on him” or “covered him” or “devoured him” or what?
I agree with @JSBangs. The writers crew would probably be more suited for this question.

comment Why is “It was a dark and stormy night..” not a good opening?
"Fiercely agitating" makes me think of an over-zealous tickling.

comment Are complex sentences uncommon or unwanted in English?
+1; The point and purpose of the paper or essay should determine how you write the paper. Creative writing will tend to have longer and more artistic sentences. Opinion pieces or descriptive essays should be short and condensed. Exceptions abound, obviously, but if you must err, err with short sentences.
