But there's the other side of it, too. I always try to push my vocabulary a little -- it's necessity in doing any kind of fresh writing. Too many phrases end up sounding like everyone else because the same types of words are being used.

The words aren't anything fancy, but I've had novice writers cry, "Don't use that word! I don't know what it means!" Um, couldn't look up the word in the dictionary?
