Hello all. Lately I’ve been feeling like my writing style hasn’t changed in many years. I feel that my writing is a little infantile. Infantile is the word I use to describe the reading level of my prose. While I want to write for adults, I don’t think my prose reads like it’s for adults. I think that it’s more suited for YA, and I don’t want to be a YA writer. My writing is heavily influenced by Power Rangers when I was a teenager. I think that I haven’t progressed from that influence. I want to adopt a new, more adult writing style using characters closer to my age (35!!! WOW!) and more adult themes. I have been working on an outline for the monster hunting prince idea for a while, but I’ve decided to hold off on it to do some research. What is this research? I’m going to read the Dresden Files books to see what I can learn. I’m on the second book “Fool Moon”. The story is alright so far. I just hope that I can learn something good about Jim Butcher’s style. 🙂
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll check in with you all later!
Thanks for reading!
