now i style

Sounding Good

I want to talk about style for a second. Specifically, about ignoring style.

Recently, my writing has turned a corner, and I attribute this to my decision not to think about style at all when I’m writing my first draft (and often my second).

Now, instead of style, I think about clarity. I think only about how I can clearly communicate the thought in my head. Now, obviously this requires style-related decisions…but I don’t see them that way. I just focus on the thought and how best to make it visible or intelligible. At a certain point, maybe around draft three or four, I’ll let myself ask questions like “does this sentence sound good?” But by then, it’s quite late in the process.

This attitude toward style won’t work for everybody. It probably works for me because I’m a recovering style addict. I’m someone who once coveted a beautiful style as a sign of writerly election. But it’s kind of like what they say about comedy: you can’t be funny if you’re trying to look good. When I try to write beautifully, I stop thinking. My words and thoughts disconnect. When I just write to communicate, style issues get worked out subconsciously until I’m good and ready to face them.

Small gems like her are as easy to lose as a cell phone, but instead of just getting a new one from the store you have to snatch it out of the air, lock it in your bathroom, and re-indoctrinate its entire system of beliefs
