I'm sure most of us have seen the two recent threads by another writer where style was mentioned. I kind of want to piggyback on the aspect of having or wanting to have a certain writing style. Do you think writers have a natural writing style and it's just out of our hands? Or do you think we can play a role in having the writing style of our choosing? I think what we read can influence to some degree. I sure hope it does because I think the stuff I read is pretty great. But I'm not sure what my own writing style really is. When I was just starting out with fiction, I thought I knew what my style was. I would have said things like I was a minimalist or description really wasn't my thing and considered those things part of my style. I got along pretty well, thinking I knew what my style was. But it was when I just let all that go that I became any better than I was probably going to get otherwise. So, my style has changed. I don't often think on a sentence level while writing. I am just typing the words as they pop in my head when I sit down at my keyboard. But I'm not sure where I've landed in terms of style. Is there something wrong if you don't know what your own style even is? I must have one, right? I mean I used to have one, but I don't really write like that anymore.
