What is /lit/'s opinion on prose?

There are different explanations (words not in verse, words in best order, etc).

Is there some specific order to arrange your words, so as to be widely accepted?

Do you have to use as many obscure old archaic words as possible?

Do you have to fit as many double entendres as possible in a sentence /paragraph?

What is purple prose? What is pink prose?

I guess a prose thread.

Give examples of your best prose, possibly a paragraph long, on any topic, others judge your ability.

With all the talks of shit prose, for this, and purple prose, for that, I thought you guys would be experts.

Seems like i was mistaken.
>>
Read Moby-Dick, Lolita and Blood Meridian. They all have great prose but are very different. There isn't one formula for good prose. The answer to your questions are yes and no.

>many ways

Do you have to use as many obscure old archaic words as possible?
>no, word choice should reflect other aspects of the piece

Do you have to fit as many double entendres as possible in a sentence /paragraph?
>no, only if there is tension building up to it

What is purple prose? What is pink prose?
>big words with little meaning/relevance, overcompensation for lack of meaning and/or skill
>don't know what pink prose is

OP, you want to discuss prose/writing, on a board that doesn't even read?

Everyone just shitposts memes, no one here actually reads, or writes.

I'm currently ~100 pages into Infinite Meme and I feel the prose quality is all over the place.

Where does it rate on a scale of god tier to shit tier?

The 'meme post' served as a bump to the first page.

What are some books with beautiful prose? Just read The Great Gatsby and loved it and then Clockwork Orange but I didn't like it as much. (Going through the /lit starter) been reading since I was a kid, read many things but they weren't all good.

Prose is a fucking reddit-tier meme, you fucking newfag.

>>>/Reddit/

>>7606966
Prose is a reddit meme? You're fitting in wrong. Get the fuck out and go back to imgur or reddit or wherever else you came from.

>Prose is a fucking reddit-tier meme, you fucking newfag

Is that why people ride dfw's dick, proclaiming his prose erection enabling?

Is it lame to end a non-rhyming poem with a rhyme?
Is it tired and generic or did i dream that?
