Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread
As a reader, I think its a matter of sticking to what you're comfortable with. If you're trying really hard to write this technical masterpiece and you're not exactly comfortable in writing it, then it will show in your writing. I, personally, would much rather read a more simple and fluid piece than a gritty, detailed yet clunky, 50/50, not so sure'ish piece, if that makes sense. But I guess on the other hand, staying within your comfort zone doesn't allow you to improve blah blah. So basically I'm rambling.
Basically, if it's not working out for you as a writer, it won't work out for us as a reader and we'll be able to tell a mile off. Stick to what you're comfortable with but don't be afraid to try it anyway, there's no harm in going back and restarting if needs be.
Did that even answer the question remotely? I dunno.
Ramble ramble ramble.
