A thought.

I feel my writing becomes more grandiloquent the longer I work on a story/series.
I had to google that! And then the whole sentence got a new level of depth :) Learned a new word, thank you! ^_^

Maybe you feel like you have up the ante all the time, so people will keep reading? (had to google that too, to make sure I'm using the expression at least somewhat correctly) That's actually what I keep thinking about Supernatural, how are they going to beat the things from a previous season in the next. If they stay on the air long enough, they'll have to show us God eventually :D
:$ yes, but I also mean in the wordy, verbose sense of the term as well.

But I do always feel the need to up the ante. I get fewer reviews per chappie than I used to. :(
