This has come up recently, and I certainly think it’s an interesting aspect of writing.
There’s a fair few hobbyist (or professional!) writers reading this blog, and I’m sure you guys are familiar with your own writing style. Or styles. It’s good if you have more of those in your tool belt, but here’s a question for you: are they still all recognizably yours? Come on, there’s no wrong answers here. Think it over for a minute, look back at a couple of things you’ve written. Do you employ the same kinds of subtleties to add in that little extra spice? Does your own voice shine through in every single style you write in?
Chances are, it does. And that’s not necessarily good or bad. It definitely adds that personal touch that makes it yours. Someone won’t be likely to spot it in a group of a hundred other pieces of text, but if you tell them they’ll go “oh yeah, I see how that’s yours”. What if you can turn that personal touch off, or transform it into something different altogether? Wouldn’t it be a great extra way to control the way your story reads, the vibes it gives off? I think that’s a pretty powerful tool, but also incredibly hard to master. Not only do you have to write objectively, you may need to do something against your personal instincts.
Or maybe that’s all bullshit I just thought up that’s only mildly plausible. Who knows, I’m no expert.
