I couldn't give two flips about Knaack's "Mary Sues" or raptor armies or what-have-you... my main beef is with the fact that the man's prose makes me want to gargle Drano.How can I even describe his writing style? It just feels so clunky, stilted, unnatural... it's like a teenager trying to write a fanfic, with "good-ish" sentence structure but nothing to write home about, kind of rambly at times but forgivable enough, and then they go "Oh crap, I need this to sound more grown up!" so they cram in a metric assload of painfully-more-"artsy"-than-necessary words at completely bizarre intervals and it... just... doesn't... work...Yeah... my own grammar and sentence structure in that last paragraph were fairly crap, but *I'm* not getting paid for this.
