We start today’s episode off with a discussion about the use of adverbs in your writing. Specifically, whether you should follow the old adage of cutting them out of your work or if it’s not actually that bad to use them. After that, we have a long conversation about purple prose. 

For those who don’t know, purple prose is essentially overwriting to the point that it harms the story you’re telling. We talk about whether we think purple prose gets a bad rap and if it should hold a place in your writing. 

We end the episode by talking about allegory (not analogy, which we so egregiously say over and over again). 

#98: Reclaiming Your Creative Life Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

We start things off with an interesting conversation about Microsoft Word's new "woke" editing feature. After that, we chat it up with some dialogue talk. Finally, we get to the real topic of the day and devote a good portion of the episode to discussing how to reclaim your creative life.  Many of us struggle with creating (in our case, writing) because life seems to always beat us down. It's hard to find your rhythm and get things going the way you want them to. But we might have a solution. One you probably won't like to hear.  Check out our work at http://www.drunkenpenwriting.com Follow us on Twitter @drunkpenwriting On Instagram @drunkenpenwriting And like us on Facebook @drunkenpenwriting
