How do you feel about this style of writing? Do you think its effective? I've been experimenting with this sort of style, which is heavy on dialouge and description with little internal monologue. I think the minimalist style that naturally results is interesting for the reader as they have to work out the meaning behind the actions of the characters with little guidance from the author. This is the same as film, where you're given visuals and have to work out their significance. Do you think this style is too sparse though? Or boring to read? What kind of writers typically use this style? I've been reading some Fitzgerald and he uses some cinematic techniques, as does Bret Easton Ellis. What other cinematic techniques could be implemented into writing? I think it's an interesting genre of writing that hasn't been explored that much and could help to enhance one's writing style.
