Blog chain time again. This round was started by Michelle H. She wants us to:
Be positive! Name some of the positive aspects of your writing — be it a compliment from a mentor, friend or crit partner to anything special you learned concerning your writing skills.
This was way harder than it should've been. I could spend hours telling you the things I need to improve on, but to actually point out the positives is a whole other situation. Not that I think I'm a bad writer. If that were the case, I would've quit long ago.
Okay, I'll give this a try.
I've been told by several people that my dialogue is good and feels natural. Also, after much research and experimenting I've started to feel like I have a handle on the concept of voice (not that I could explain it to anyone else) and I've had a few compliments on that.
I'm a very detail-oriented person (aka crazy perfectionist) so my writing is usually pretty clean when it comes to grammar and punctuation--even my rough drafts.
And I think that's enough about me. :)
What about all of you? What are some of the positive aspects of your writing? Don't be shy. ;)
