In my writing, one of my friends always comments on this.
She said this was pretentious
> **Transitioning to a star in the desolate lonely sky, paint exploded on the quiet canvas that was her gracefully, like a butterfly that moves among a group of moths, unaware of who they were and their small but noteworthy position in changing someone’s life."
I’m just wondering what I have to do. Should I stop trying to be deep when I write? And what idioms should I watch out for? etc, etc, etc. Do you guys have any tips to stop my pretentious writing? I would appreciate it a lot.
