Different Styles of WritingPosted: May 19, 2009 | |
There are different styles of writing.
There are different types of writers.
Anne Jackson, a friend and fellow blogger, writes in a more stream-of-consciousness, conversational style.
Nick Kristoff, a New York Times columnist, writes serious, journalistic articles and books on human rights issues.
Rob Bell, a provocative pastor and author, writes sometimes in incomplete sentences, as if he were speaking to a church group.
Your writing is unique from that of the above writers. So is mine.
But the trick is knowing when to use what style of writing. The trick is not getting pigeon-holed as a certain type of author. The trick is knowing your audience and writing in a way that is authentically “you,” while still being relevant and sensitive to your readers.
Failing to utilize different writing styles will greatly limit you in your opportunities to reach people with your message, whatever that may be.
