Big Words

Where I’m at Wednesday June 11, 2014

I have been so busy this week! You wouldn’t believe half the stuff that I’ve researched. Poland is an amazing country–rich with culture, architecture, and history. I am in love.

I am also glad to report that the end to The Omphalos of Delphi is within my grasp. I still have a ways to go, but most of the main issues have been resolved. I’ll admit that alternating between the three separate stories got too cumbersome. Now, I’m focusing on each one individually without interference. After they are finished,  I will then interweave them together. This process has helped immensely.
Currently, I am writing chapters 24, 25, and 27, but things are moving faster even with the amount of research I did.

Big words may sound nice, but don’t get so carried away that you lose people’s interest. Years ago, I knew someone who felt big words would reflect on their education. To them, being known as an intellectual was more important than getting a point across. I try to lean in the opposite direction.
Educating the reader gently is more effective than to make them stop reading just to focus on a specific word. Your story should have a sound backbone, and not waste the reader’s time with arrogant fluff.
