Ok. I've noticed that it seems that everyone who comments on my hubs or sends me fanmail say the same thing. "Your style of writing is different" or "Its interesting, haven't seen it before." Well I want to know what everyone means by that. Is it so unique that if you saw it mixed in with other writings you would be able to tell that it's mine? or does it all sound the same(like me) when you read different ones? I just want some feedback on all of it. So take a look and let me know. Please. Because eversince I started Hubbing it's been on my mind.
I wouldn't worry about it too much, with enough practice writers will tend to develop a distinctive style of writing. It's part of the attraction. I struggled for years to sound like a favorite writer of mine, a fruitless and pointless process that cost me a lot of pain and time. Whether you like it or not, whether you write about children's toys or chainsaws, you'll always be you. And you're better off being you -- if you fake it, people will see right through you.
Being different is huge advantage, and possibly the best compliment a writer can get (unless they're politely critiquing your grammar...)
I don't want to write like anyone else or anything, I just want to know what people see when they see my writing. for instance when i read some Langston hughes I know its him.
That's probably what they mean. I had a similar experience years ago at a job where I typed the weekly department meetings. Many people said they liked my writing style - I had no idea what they meant! I asked and asked until I found out this:
It's the words you choose and the way you use them. It's good to be unique.
If you're doing your job as a creative writer, then your style will be as distinctive as you are, and won't need a name outside your own. Langston Hughes is immediately recognizable because his poetry is him. Let your words be you, and work to make them sound like music. I never liked categories, anyway.
I will go visit your hubs. When I read I like to experience the raw emotion of the writer's words------words that make you feel and think and reflect----words that produce lots of emotions.
