What sets a writer apart from others?
Is there any special way to draw your readers in? Please elaborate...
What makes me want to read other writers is their knowledge and voice. If someone is writing about something they aren't familiar with, it really does show, it usually seems forced. By voice, I mean that a good writer can tell me fact upon fact about their subject, and the article or work will not read like an encyclopedia. I'm not saying I want writers to dumb down their work to keep me interested, but having a good flow and making your information more interesting can't hurt.
I honestly think everyone is a writer to some degree. Ordinary people with ordinary lives are just as good as the troubled artist struggling to put together the perfect sentence. Writers are basically anybody. But readers are different. Readers set themselves apart from tv watchers and movie goers with their ability to articulate their thoughts, use a longer vocabulary, speak slower, and avoid the use of cliches.
