What is the Color of your Writing? A Blog by Warren Bull

The most common description of language using color is, of course, purple prose. That is when superfluous verbiage is employed in a myriad of unnecessary and seemingly over-extravagant, rococo elaboration of fanciful ornamentation of the craft of stenography as authorship may be described by a pedantic, if brutish, expositor lacking the panache or veritable weltanschauung of the pen ultra compositionist of linguistic parlance and phraseology extraordinaire.  

Beige prose simply tells what is.

Blue language is the use of profanity, which is pretty f’ing easy to overuse and which leaves the G D reader thinking sh*t, this m’f’ing writer don’t know how the “h e double hockey sticks” get their bl**dy head out of their a**.

Ha! I don't often snort with laughter, Warren, but when I do it's over something like this. It's wonderful. Thanks!
