One word keeps popping up in reader comments about my fiction. Creepy.
The description suits my writing style whether I’m intentionally trying to creep out the reader or not. The word showed up in a recent post and at first, I was a little surprised. I had no creepy intentions for the piece.
I realized, as I was rereading the entry that it is creepy in spite of my original intention.
This experience has given me new insight into my own writing style. It’s creepy and I’m comfortable with that. It’s actually appealing but it could be better. The word that I would like to see creeping up into responses about my fiction is hautning.
What one word describes your writing style? What word would you like to describe it?
