They say writing is like speaking and thinking. From the moment we learn how to form letters into words, we are introduced to the world of expressing ourselves. You can share your thoughts, ideas or what interests you with others poetically, metaphorically, or matter-of-factly (we took a little creative license with that turn of phrase).

Pick a book, newspaper or magazine, and you will notice what’s written was done in a style that made the content interesting or boring. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to the words you write and how you present those words. Choosing the best writing style for your project can elevate your material to a “worthy read” or a classic.

Writers — not just professional novelists and historians — but anyone who sits down and picks up a pen, need to select a style or form of writing they want to emulate. There are plenty of options to choose:

Poems and lyrics: If we want to say something lyrically or rhythmically, whether to turn it into a song with music or say it with flow, this style of expression can be particularly meaningful. It can make language fun or moving, but takes talent, a quick wit, and a strong vocabulary.

Tales and Novels: This is an exciting genre to explore. Tales and novels take you away from the current world to a place the author wants you to visit. It could be fiction or nonfiction, but the strength of the narrative lies in how much it involves its reader.

Articles and blogs: The concept behind article or blog writing is to share a personal or professional story or experience to the reader. It can be an idea, product, event or a concept that the author wants to share with others and involve them in it by providing information and/or connecting with the reader.

News Articles: News articles are a more focused form of writing where the content written informs others about something that happened or is happening. It is an actual event people might want to know about, or need to know about. This is done for the awareness and education of people. The emphasis of the writing is on “who, what, when, where, why — and how.”

Biographies and autobiographies: This form of writing delves into one’s own life or the life of someone else and shares the different stages, twists, turns, ups, and downs of it with others for entertainment and/or education.

Writing is not limited to the list above — there’s a whole new world to explore. Various forms and styles appeal to different authors and potential authors! If you want to explore your inner Dickinson, Hemingway, Shakespeare, Sande or Sartre, give us a call at Masters Essay:
