      At least I can't read any more. Perhaps a lack of attention, but books, especially novels talk too much. I need my entertainment to "get to the point" and that seems to be something that "good writing" actively avoids. They want to "paint you a picture" spending paragraphs describing a desert for example.


    That's one reason I like sword and sorcery. As you say - it gets to the point. The sword-point, so to speak. The authors know and respect their audience, most of whom are fans of things like comic books, video games, action films, and tabletop RPGs.

Depends on the writer. Robert Jordan with Wheel of Time for instance is crazy wordy. Tolkien is wordy himself depending on the book. Not to knock either because I enjoy them. Just is variable.

I honestly like the "establishing shot" or description. It is more immersive and important for tone. Particularly with horror.

Look Raist bunnies...
