Colloquialisms; every writer is told to “stay away” from them. Yet some of the most incredible novels ever written have a lot of colloquial writing in them. From the venerable Mark Twain to the more recent Steven King this dreaded language style inhabits tales that seem to crank you in and pull you along in so many ways. I am interested this week in your own “colloquial” styles and what kind of language or sayings you grew up with. What do you have to overcome to write in an “accepted” style? What plagues you in your personal writings?
Please respond by Wednesday April the 6th, use GWWE in the title and tag it with Colloquial.
I had a lot of nice responses to last weeks post!
These authors all took a chance and wrote “outside the box” of their comfort zones so take a look and remember to hit the “recommend” button if you like it!
