"...weighed down by superfluous adjectives."
What would you do if described thus?
What would it feel like to see your work described as "superfluous" and know your enemies are seeing that too?
No one gets reviewed like writers do. I suppose fair's fair given a writers' livelihood is review. But Superfluous? That seems too harsh.
The editing process is so brutal anyway, you wouldn't want to be left with "superfluous". What did you take out if what you left is superfluous?
I couldn't stand it.
But perhaps this "superfluous" author didn't have strenuous enough editing. I can only hope that is the case. And that being hated is better than being ignored.
Still, I am worried about being reviewed.
