Oh, I can produce excessive nominalizations with the best of 'em. I also overuse semicolons and dashes, and I have a weakness for unnecessary adverbs. But I know I do those things, so I can be on the lookout for them when I'm revising.

I mean, I also know that I need to excavate the point of ALMOST EVERY PARAGRAPH from the end where I have hidden it, so that too is a fixable problem. But when it comes to stylistic infelicities, I have the excuse of reading piles of terrible academic prose for many years now, whereas taking forever to figure out my own damn point *feels* like something I ought to have gotten over by now, even though I *know* that is not how I work.

In conclusion, writing is hard, yo.
