‘Stop the Lousy Writing, Please!’ (2015)

If there’s one thing that’s hard to bear, it’s reading page after page of forced sarcasm and dopey slang in a fantasy novel. Not that it would be all that great in any other kind of novel; but fantasy seems especially prone to it.

Stop the Lousy Writing, Please!

Much of this can be blamed on dim-witted adults who think they’re cleverly writing down to teenagers. By “teenager” they mean someone with the intelligence of a radiator hose. They’ve been watching too much television and way too many movies.

It’s hard to beat plain English as a means of communication.

I wish some of these writers would try it sometime.

  1. Marvel and DC Comics have taken over the realm of fantasy, and there seems to be no end to the superheroes they produce to save the world.
    How I long for movies that depend on good dialogue for their success. Even the new version of “Call of the Wild” uses a IMB digital dog instead of a real one.
