Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time.

Media Kits

Once you become a published author you have no idea who may be stalking visiting your website. If a member of the media visits looking for information on you and/ or your book what will they find? Professional bloggers should have media kits too.

Writing On…

Writing Wednesday

Typewriter Pink

Wednesday is the day I like to share information, tips and inspiration with writers and bloggers. The kind of information that I wish someone would have shared with me back then.

I stopped making New Year’s Resolutions many years ago for the usual reason. I never, ever accomplished them and I was so tired of the feeling of failure. I would start out every January promising myself I was going to exercise, eat right, visit more people; become serious about my writing and so on and so on.

For those of you participating in NaNoWriMo can you believe we only have one more week to go? I am a little less than ¾ of the way to the finish line. Whether I make the 50,000 word goal or not isn’t concerning me. For me making writing urgent again leaves me feeling like a winner.

Style

 

Our writing style refers to the manner that we authors choose to tell our stories to our readers. Our style is defined by our voice, word choice and our tone.

There are four basic literary styles. The Argumentative style is one in which the writer tells the reader about a person, place or thing and leaves out his or her personal opinion on the topic. This is the style professional journalist should use.

The Descriptive style is when the writer describes their characters, events and places in great detail. Sometimes this type of writing style is poetic and it can also include sensory details.

Writing style

Persuasive style is a style the writer uses to persuade the reader to believe and support his or her point of view.

The Narrative style is exactly what it sounds like. The writer tells a story.

What’s your style?

Happy writing,

Doreen
