*blushes* Er...wow. This makes it sound like I actualy have a style of 
writing. Yes, I do tend to be dominated by plot and ideas (Fan.Boy started 
as comedy, but then the plot took over and the comedy fell away) and my 
"minimalist" descriptive style probably comes from that in that I want to 
get on with the next bit of the plot instead of sit around and describe 
things (at other times, I've deliberately had to go through an give some 
stories a "descriptive pass" where I just concentrate on making sure 
everything is described properly). Whether this is a style people like 
reading is, well, up to the reader.

(That said, there is an aspect to my writing that hasn't been covered, but 
I'm not going to say what.)

I'm flattered that you think my work worthy of an essay. Thank you, Tom.
