How to Recognize Your Writing Style

The way you form your words, is your calling card, and the main thing that people recognise you by.  If you can give your words true resonance, then you've found your writing style.

Below, discover 10 steps to finding your writing style:

1. It's Okay to be a Messy Writer

Don't stay fixated on the rules of writing, step outside of convention every now and a again.

2. Breathe Life Into Your Thoughts

Let your thoughts run free, and let your ideas flow without restraint.  It's okay if you mess up every now and again.  Nobody's perfect.

3. Read Out Loud, What You've Written Down


Everything sounds different when you start reading it out loud.  You give your lips the chance to catch up, to what your eyes have missed. 

4. Be Real

Write the way you would speak to someone, but don't make the mistake of trying to sound more intelligent.

5. You Don't Need a Script Every Time You Write

You don't need prompts or index cards to write.  'Just Write', and use your natural instinct to guide you.


6. It Isn't Just About What You Say That Counts, But It's How You Say It

Your readers should be satisfied by your tone, and not feel uncomfortable by the words you use.

7. Originality is Imitated

Your thoughts are your own, and no one else's.  Everybody experiences life differently, so don't be afraid to use your own thoughts, and put them in writing.

8. Practice, Practice, Practice

In order to grow the seed you need to water it regularly, and it grow.  Have a regular writing schedule  is the key to being a good writer.

9. Trust in Yourself as a Writer


Self-belief is the first step to writing well.  If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.

10. Be an Unambiguous Writer

Don't leave your readers fumbling around in the dark, be a confident writer and know what you mean.
