Thread: Learning to write by rewriting

    The Gold Standard is supposed to be having a unique style. That's really hard to do and really valuable.
    Not always, ever started Kerouac's 'Dr Sax'? I say 'started' because I can't imagine anyone getting far into it, but it is unique.

    Hunk of rot. Up there with Naked Lunch and Finnegans Wake.

    I take much smaller samples from other writers. I've never done the learn-by-retyping someone else's work, but as I read various writers I would find phrases, and ways that they would say a thing or segue to a new setting. My writing is really just snippets from a hundred different writers. Some I learned phrases from, others I learned character development from. I like to study at the macro level as well as the micro view.
