Style, whether in clothes or writing, is a personal choice. According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, style is "a manner of doing something characteristic of a particular person." For me, that means to soften words; to use contractions to sound more colloquial; to capture my humanity as much as possible, and to use the first word that comes to mind. Use of a bat and beaded jeans are optional.
How do you consider your style choices when writing?
