Give Your Writer Resources: Article Six
While a grammatically perfect and readable story should be a top priority for every writer, a truly finished product needs much more. I call that “much more” the qualities that place your unique mark on the pages…the fingerprint that identifies your work to your writer within. Initially as readers, we are drawn to writers such as Stephen King and Dean Koontz because they write horror, or we gravitate to John Cheever or Alice Munro because we like short stories. But in the end, why do we stay with them and continue to buy their books and be loyal readers? It is most likely because we enjoy their style of writing.
