I don’t get flowery language. Someone may have the correct word. Perhaps, there is no other word that could mean exactly what they want to say but is it any good if no one gets it?

Language was never solely about finding the right word. Rather, it was about saying the right things to the right people at the right time. At least, that is what I believe. I have a liking to the simpler things in life. So naturally, I use the first word that comes to my mind. The right word comes to you, like the ones you just read and the ones you are about to read.

I have nothing against words. Every word is beautiful, and some words are obviously more accurate than the others. However, the way I see it is that if someone spends more time on the dictionary than on your message, I think you’ve failed. If your sentence is unable to give context to that one long word you’ve squeezed in it, why bother writing it?
