My Writing Trends

I've been a little more self conscious about writing this latest novelette and have noticed these things about my writing:

  • I've started being much more liberal in editing down. I've been cutting out parts that I love for the sake of tightening up the story.
  • My mantra is shorter, shorter, shorter. I like short video games and movies that are 90 minutes long. If I can tell a short story in the time it takes to watch a movie, then I'm doing my job.
  • I tend to lean on characters asking themselves questions. Why is that?
  • Once the story is ending, I'm not one for a long goodbye. Let's wrap up these endings and go about our day.
Now that I'm self-aware of these, I'll try playing around with these conventions in the next work.
