Writing Style

I found this rather amusing- so I wanted to share it. 🙂 So, each person has his/her own unique style of writing, right? Right, but you might find it interesting that the style can change.

When I was in elementary school, there was a certain author I loved. Her name was Enid Blyton. She was a British author, and I loved her books so much that at that time, they were pretty much the only books I was reading. And back then, I actually had free time to write what I liked, so as I was constantly reading, I was constantly writing.

Before I knew it, I was using British spellings and British phrases! Even in school, any writing I did, whether it be creative writing or formal essays, would be written in a British style.

I had always been told that good readers equaled good writers. But I had no idea that your writing style was influenced so much by the type of books you read!

But you know what? Even though your style can change depending on what you read, I think it’s still your unique style. It’s probably similar to the style of your favorite authors, because those are the people you admire. But at the same time, it’s YOURS.

Time for an awesome quote of the day:

“An original writer is not one who imitates nobody, but one whom nobody can imitate.” ~Chateaubriand, Le Génie du Christianisme, 1802

Keep writing!
