Thursday Thirteen: 13 writing tones
I was in the Acer chat last night and Bria brought up a ‘What tone you write’ kind of a fill in the blank thing. So I thought I’d write some tones I think my writing/book falls under for fun in this week’s Thursday Thirteen.
My writing tone is ______
1 Dark. First thing that comes to mind, I think is dark because there’s death and torment. The characters have gone through a lot before the story has even begun, and not all of it is good.
2 Tense. Or I hope that I can get that across. There’s supposed to be some tension of ‘whodunnit’ and what happens next.
3 Sexy. Or at least I hope somewhat. There’s romance. I want what’s between the two main chars to be hot and sizzle off the page.
4 Intrigue. That, oooh what’s next and what’s happening kind that leaves you turning pages to find out what happens.
5 A chameleon. I think that my writing is adaptable.
6 Serious. It deals with heavy matter that isn’t always comforting because it’s the environment that my chars grew up in. They wouldn’t be who they are now if they didn’t go through certain life changing events.
7 Sarcastic. Or at least at times it can be. I’ve always been told I’m sarcastic and I think that comes across through my chars.
8 Dramatic. Not something I really want in my writing and I’m editing it… but I feel it there.
9 A bit playful. There’s a few scenes where the chars are playful which I hope lightens the story a bit.
10 Callous. Or at least a few chars I know are.
11 Crazy. Or maybe that’s just me. :p
12 Whimsical. Everything is just a little bit odd… no one who they seem. Everyone has a secret or two.
13 Complex. There’s so many different story lines, so many elements that it leads to one complicated mess.
What are your writing tones?
