Your individual writing style is the manner in which you express yourself. It develops over time with practice, and is a result of your personal choices and individuality. Here are a few things you can do to develop your writing style naturally.
Firstly you need to practice regularly. There is no other way to replace this. You should make the effort to try different writing styles and experiment with techniques. The more you write, the easier it will become to identify your own distinct method.
After that, you must be clear and precise. Using the correct choice of nouns and verbs you can provide details which bring your style to life. The more detail you provide, the more chance you have of passing on the details of your imagination to the reader.
Following that you can is to use your natural voice. Just like we do when speaking, we have our own unique way of communicating. Your writing should progress naturally, and have an identifiable ‘tone’.
The next thing is to read, read, read. The more you read the more you will unconsciously absorb the best ways to write fluently. You will learn how to inject individual style by watching your role-models.
Last of all, you will have to pay attention to your choice of words. As you speak in a different way to different people, you must also write differently according to your audience. Consider the way your patterns of speech change when you are speaking with your boss, as opposed to your spouse or your child. Writing should change too according to the purpose of the manuscript.
Now, keeping these things in mind, you can practice and experiment with various styles until you find your own unique style that you are comfortable writing in throughout your writing career.
