I would like to write a complex sentence using neither and nor.

For example:

This method is neither fast, as it requires long times to give the result, nor simple as it requires three main challenges steps.

Is this a correct way to use neither and nor with a sentence includes reasons?

It’s a little awkward, but not incorrect (though I think you need a comma before the second “as”).

    Definitely yes to @Josh's suggestion that a comma is needed before both 'as it ...' phrases. Also I think there is a typo in that the words 'challenges' and 'steps' are not both needed - one of those two should be deleted. Commented Dec 9, 2018 at 8:05
