We all have a different writing style; some may want to paint a picture using 20 pages of description before they even get to the dialogue, while others just pour it out from their heart, while leaving the visualization to the reader! I tend to leave something for the reader to create in their own mind; that is part of reading a great book.
When I read a book, I like to be able to visualize the characters, the environment, and feel with my heart, what they are going through. I like to have the option to do this, however this is my own opinion. I tend to create this in my own writing. I find it also helps to create more interest with my readers.
I put my readers in the driver’s seat 😊❤
What do you like to read? Do you prefer to contribute your own creativity to a novel with your visualization, or do you prefer to have it all created for you? I know this is a personal preference, but it is important to honor everyone’s creative styles. That is what makes us unique! At the end of the day, we end up balancing each other out with our styles, which makes it even more special. We are creating options, choices, and inspiration for our readers.
Writing and creativity is a gift to cherish; there is no right or wrong way, there is no “by the book”, but what there is, is called “your way”, and that is important to focus on. Following your own way of writing, brings the best stories, the best creativity, and the best projects! Follow your own way!
