Since starting this school year I’ve begun to examine my own writing style. I can’t remember if it was simultaneous or one happened right before the other but it came to my attention and my friend’s that my writing style is kind of “doodley”.
I tend to take a paragraph explaining a concept I’m trying to put across. (In most cases it can be done with a sentence or two).
But my mind doodles. And so does my pen- errr keyboard in this case.
I love metaphors and rhyme and style choices that seem naive or elementary.
I wrote a two paragraph metaphor last week and this week I wrote a basic AABB poem. I don’t really know who I am as a writer right now.
And as long as I’m not confined to a strict format I’m going to keep investigating my personal style.
