What is your writing style?
I recently read an article on the four main types of writing which made me stop and thing…am I writing in the best style? Here’s a summary of the writing styles and some examples:
Expository Writing – Used to explain things. Examples: Essays, computer how-to books, textbooks.
Descriptive Writing – Used to describe things, focusing on a character, place or event. Example: Travel article, biography.
Persuasive Writing – Used to convince and may contain opinions and reasoning. Example: News articles, political writing.
Narrative Writing – Used to tell a story through use of characters. Example: short stories, children’s book, novels.
Which writing do you use? I tend to use expository writing for my computer how-to books. I think a lot of us use multiple types of writing depending on our topic or genre.
