Having a Style

At first, an author’s style is often will’s independent. It is the thinking’s way that makes writing. That is why at first we think we are writing badly, because we would like to write in a certain way that we have not.

Yet, appreciating what we write, growing ourselves, reading our texts to our friends, we surprise ourselves. We haven’t to look like, but we have to make. Therefore, write on a blank sheet, saying "If...", allows to begin a style.

Our desire to write well tells us, soon after, or long after, how our style can grow. The others help to explain it.

The basics are simple. Short sentences make accessible, or create action. Lighten his writings become accessible. Long sentences, with few verbs, slow down the rhythm.

Then the technique is created with the sentences that are written. A thinking’s way makes a style. Improving his technique helps to extend his accessibility. First of all, the reader wants to understand, then to dream, and finally to blossom.
