Style comes with experience and persistence if you are beginning your journey of content writing then you should not be worried about style but it is not just like that. Writing is a skill developed through hours and hours of work, literally blood, sweat, and tears.
No one was ever able to play this as a game. It is hard, cold, lonely and throne filled road only the most patient, tolerant and humble among us choose this.
Making your own style
It is formed through a lot of hard work however, it is not impossible, it is just to try your best for your own style.
How to do this?
Here is a stepwise approach to make and continuously improve it through time and experience.
Know thy self was the slogan of ancient scholars and it is a popular concept among psychologists today too. So, the first step for you is to study yourself deeply. No need to hurry, look your journals, academic materials what is your style?
Are you analytical, logical, practical meaning that you are interested or inclined to figures and facts or emotional, illogical, or creative meaning dreaming, fiction and fantasy is your favorite style?
Do you like to explore the world with senses or with reasoning? Are you outgoing or solitary person and you enjoy your solitude?
The kind of person you are, the style you choose to use will be perfectly aligned to each other if the contradicting style you choose will ruin your chances to make your style even.
Yes, it is true if you copy someone else’s style you doom your self for failure. Writing is the only profession as per my knowledge that doesn’t tolerate copying. Originality is expected in the field, in online presence as well as for self-satisfaction.
I love that now employers and clients ask for plagiarism free content. If your style is copying and pasting you will be soon out of the content writing business. If you want to make your style avoid copying other’s styles.
I want to be honest with you that I find out my own style after three years of banging my head with the walls of style (metaphorically) then I learned how to write in my own style.
Well, you will be not a slow learner like me but remember my friend you ought to work in order to establish the foundation of your style.
Read as much as possible
Yes to read it right, no matter how learned or educated you are at one point or the other you are destined to be saturated and you will start repeating yourself.
When you reach this point you will not create a single word new but just repeat the same concepts and ideas, again and again, boring yourself and others.
If you want to see that this doesn’t occur to you then read as much as possible. Because it is this reading which gives you new ideas, thoughts, point of views.
Sometimes authors give us their life experiences in just one book. Just look at this post I am giving you my experience of years in just five minutes.
So, the idea here is just read and look at the manifestations of this in your writing. You will be amazed I promise if you choose to read daily.
Choose someone else to edit
Yes, really if you are serious about your writing style the two pairs of eyes play a role in polishing your style. The feedback, makes you aware of your mistakes, unconscious errors, as the slip of tongue exists the same is a slip of the pen.
You have experienced that you want to write one thing and you actually wrote another thing. It mostly happens when you are confused, troubled or worried about something else and the popular example is when you are giving your exams.
How to deal with this?
Simply show it to your family or friends if you have no budget and if you have hired a freelance editor or any platform like this to edit your writing before publishing. It will boost your own creativity as well as your online or offline writing career.
The final step
Write as much as you can
The more you write the more you will be able to find out what needs to be done in order to grow as a stylish writer having your own style. My observation and experience say that you must write at least 1000 pages to acquire your own style.
If I am wrong you can prove it by giving your example otherwise you should start writing your 10th, 100th and 1000th page to prove me right.
The choice is yours, my friend, whether you want to see your style or not. If yes I welcome you and if not I will not judge you but I hope if you are reading and searching about it you will take every step deep down your heart and make it possible.
