What do I fear? Writing 101 prompts us to write in a style different from our own.
Things I fear from retiring at age 55:
I fear I will lose…friends, family, funds.
I fear I will become…fat, frumpy, feebleminded and foolish.
I fear failure and fries… yes, fries!
With a leap of faith,
And wings, I will fly …
and fan away the flames of unfounded fears.
I am free…
to focus on fitness, fabulousness, and free time;
Filling my life with fun.
Day Seventeen: Your Personality on the Page
Today’s Prompt: We all have anxieties, worries, and fears. What are you scared of? Address one of your worst fears. Today’s Twist: Write this post in a style distinct from your own.
Earlier in Writing 101, we talked about voice: that elusive element that sets you apart from every other writer out there. Style, however, is different. Your writing style might affect your voice, but ultimately style and voice aren’t the same thing. While your voice is your own, and something that’s innately you, style is much broader. Or, you might write short sentences. Fragments, even. Simple prose.
