Just curious as to what type of writing style people use. Now I'm not wondering what kind of genre you like, I'm asking how you write your stories. Do you use a lot of detail, humor what kind of narrating voice you use, that sort of thing. I prefer standard past-tense style narrating voice (As Megan walked into the room she could feel all eyes watching her) I usually use the standard style for more laid back kind of stories. But I also like to use the other style where the narrator is the main character's perception, and usually I do that in present-tense. (As I walk into the room, I can feel all eyes watching me.) I pretty much have humor in all of my stories. It's hard for me not to find the humor in things because that's just the kind of person I am. It's definately a challenge for me when I want to sit down and write an actual scary story, bereft of all humor. I like to make my writing sound kind of cool. Use short sentences and paragraphs. Almost like a poem. I won't do this through the whole story but definately as much as I can. Or I try to word a dramatic part in a way that it sounds pretty awesome, but not overboard. Where I'm effortless is my characters. I've been making up characters since I was 10, so I've gotten pretty good at it, as well as dialogue. But where I struggle at is my plot. Everytime I come up with a good idea I'll be writing and suddenly I'll start thinking about a plot and two days later I've decided it's a hopeless story. Does anybody here change writing styles for different genres?
