“In fiction, I’m writing elaborate prose. I’m writing with adjectives, adverbs, and rich textual description involving all five senses to really put somebody into the scene that I’m writing. At work, I literally have to go through after I’ve written anything and strip all of that out of there: all of the adjectives, all of the adverbs. I want to tell as concise and clean a narrative in my professional world as I possibly can.”
