“Style means the right word. The rest matters little.” – Jules Renard

Have you read some books and wondered how the writer could write so beautifully yet you can’t point to anything significantly special in the writing style? This is probably because the writer has found a way to put the right words in the most appropriate spots to create magic, making it difficult for you to drop the book. 

This is an art every writer has to learn. Once you do this, your readers will find it easy to read your work and they’d love you much more.  There are a thousand and one rules that exist for writers to follow and sometimes trying to remember and fit all into your writing can be hectic. What you need to do instead is make sure you use the right words.  Avoid Clichés and be as descriptive as possible.

Use words that evoke strong emotions. For example, it is not every time a person cries, there are times they weep or sob. Differentiating these may just be what will make your writing fab. 

Once you get this right, the rest doesn’t really matter,
