Which do you prefer? Lurid, fruity prose, awash in imagery and sensuous textures and colors? Or straight-forward, clean, simple prose?
(You thought I was going to ask something else, didn’t you? Admit it!)
I actually enjoy both types of writing. I find that I enjoy more descriptive prose when I am on vacation and the straight forward type when I am commuting. However, if a story is good, I enjoy it no matter what the writing style.
