What is My Style?

When you ask "what is my style?" or worse, "how do I find my style?" you are asking the wrong questions.

It's the wrong question because you already have a style. And your style, whatever it is, will evolve and improve as you keep writing. You have to write first, put your work out there and improve through practice.

Then you'll come to know and understand your style.

Stop with the metaphysical questions about writing. They are delaying tactics, nothing more. They distract you from what you should be doing: getting more practice and experience.

You already have a style. Share it, and improve on it.
