(definitions from Dictionary.com)
40. showy or ostentatious.
Flash, with its emphasis on each word, does give writers the
chance to be showy. All the how-to-books tell us that such a show distracts. If
we write something brilliantly, we surely must delete it. It isn’t about us;
it’s about our characters. Well, let’s say they’re wrong. Make this one about
you! Strut your writerly stuff.
