Own skin

How should a writer write? This is a question that’s perturbed me when it’s come to writing fiction, because you are supposed to write in a literary manner, which means to sound the literary way. Be that literature or fiction, there’s a way of sounding right. In literature, even use elevated language, sophisticated prose, and put on the charm. In fiction, you got to sound like you are writing a blockbuster, chunky and punchy. To get published, you got to sound published. But this week I have been comfortable in my own skin as a creative writer and it’s not about trying to sound literary and tweak an expression a certain literary way.
