When we write it’s important to maintain consistency though our project. For example, if a writer has a writing style that is simplistic then she shouldn’t use a flowery description of a character or place. It might sound good, it might shine like a pearl in the writer’s eyes, but it has to go because it is inconsistent to the way the rest of the story is written.
Anything different to the majority of the prose will stand out and jolt the reader from the story—no matter how well written.
Do you have difficulty deleting fantastic gems of prose that don’t fit in with the rest of your writing style for a piece?
