Very good point. I suspect there are various societal forces pushing writers, especially new ones, in this direction. Also, my feeling is that creative writing courses tend to produce a homogenous style / approach.

The modern novel has given us the Free Indirect style, interiority, memory and it's blurry edges, the 'tableau vivant', and much more.
With most of what I read/heard today, I struggled to work out where I was. What was happening was unclear and overdramatic I searched for purity

Um, is the vid coming back? Msg says: Video unavailable. This video has been removed by the user.
I'll assume it's for editing, and creep back later to have a look ...

Thx Steve. I didn’t feel it was quite up to par, so have removed it for the moment.
