Do I have a writing style? HAWMC #15
Writing with Style. What is your style ? Do your words flow from your mind to your fingertips? Do you like handwriting first? Do you plan your posts? Title first or last? Where do you write best?
Writing style ? I don't know I've not really thought about it. Do I need a writing style? I am not a professional writer. I am more of a scientific writer rather than one who writes flowery creative pieces. When I took English Comp in college the professor would hand back my assignments and say "Add words, make it more descriptive". That is not me though. I guess I try to look for the most concise way to say what I want to say.
I do think for some time about what I will write about. Sometimes I write about my experiences , sometimes I write about how I feel, sometimes I write a commentary on something I have read, seen or done and sometimes I just read research articles and then try to relay them to my readers in easy to understand terms.
Then I start writing. I don't usually have a title before I write. Probably 99% of the time I write the post and then come up with the title. I don't think I write catchy titles like some of my blogger friends. Wish I could do that sometimes.
I now love writing posts on my computer while sitting in my new mission style chair in the sun room of my home. I can pause , look at the ducks in the pond, birds in the trees and flowers in bloom.
Every Day is a Blessing!
