Different Styles

We all have our different styles and ways of writing. This article provides some helpful ideas for every kind of writer.

Hand any writer multiple tasks, and you will find out a lot about their personalities very quickly. Some of us tend to be the kind of people who determinedly hammer at a single, linear task batch until it surrenders. Others of us nimbly shift from one task to another depending on where we see possible progress. How you face a bunch of tasks-because every writer faces far more tasks than just getting the words down on paper-can help you plan.

Whether you write thousands of words at a time or just manage to scribble down a paragraph (my “Chunky Method Handbook” has more on that dynamic), I have found a great model for productivity the beloved Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo. Ask anyone if he is more of a Marlin or a Dory, and he usually knows. That’s the power of a brilliant story-we can easily see ourselves in the characters. Learn more.
