An Area of Great Difficulty

The rule outlined in Vonnegut's "How to Write with Style" that will be most difficult for me to follow is the one that says we should sound like ourselves. It is a threat to me because often times when you are given a inch you want to take a mile. Meaning that fine line between formal and informal writing is one that I easily cross. Insuring that I keep my writing natural/orginal but also making sure that it is still professional/informal!

  1. the same with me. trying to use proper grammar and sound like myself is kinda difficult to me. But i have read some books by black authors with excessive southern diction such as "yall" , and "yonder", "ya hear" and etc.
