Why are fucking readers so fucking fickle? When I write simply, they fucking accuse me of telling rather than showing. When I do "show, don't tell", they fucking complain of purple prose. When I start writing simply again, they start complaining that I'm writing brown prose.

Fuck this bullshit, readers should be sent to a goddamn gulag and be repeatedly hit with rifle butts until they learn to appreciate my work.

Don't give me "balance" and "moderation" bullshit, what the fuck do they want? Do they want vivid, beautiful worlds or a thrilling, "zippy" experience?

On average, do readers prefer purple prose or telling?

Fucking reader-niggers.
