comment How important is it to know the end before the writing the beginning?
looks cool, you've sparked my interest and i'd love to read something of yours. The only thing is that my "novels queue" is a little long; it would probably be a while. do you have a short story you can point me towards for the meantime?

love your handle. Hope you let something of your knowledge in other realms figure into your writing, not necessarily in a sci-fi kind of way (though thats great too), but fiction informed by ideas like the uncertainty principle. Thinking along the lines of Pynchon or DFW

Aaah I follow. Makes sense now that you put it that way. I think that is a very good description of "traditional" use, but certainly there is some merit to a slightly absurdist style with tangential diversions? My writing obviously fell short of theirs, but I wrote the two silly responses in the middle with something like David Foster Wallace or Kurt Vonnegut in mind.

@Aerovistae - The middle two are obviously way over the top (loved learning the term purple btw!) So while you're overall point makes sense: metaphors being meant to simplify? I'm not sold at all. Most adjectives are plenty simple. Deep comparisons tell a lot more. Concise? Yes. Simplified? Not at all.

cool - thanks for comments. this is the first ive heard of purple prose. for some reason (perhaps undeserved) i really like the milk/wine thing, is there a better way i couldve developed that? i feel like i kind of "laid it on a pretty thick". i like the term 'purple prose' to describe it. kind of analogous to being a ham when acting.
