What's your writing style? Social or Solitary?
As I sit here reading over blog posts about Camp NaNoWriMo, an old post by Angeline Trevena got me thinking. She talked about being a social writer, unable to write well in solitary. I immediately realized that I'm a solitary writer. I need a place where I can concentrate without interruptions. It doesn't have to be quiet but conversations need to be around me, not to me. I've been able to blank out
Word wars, #wordmongering and the like are new to me but I fear the pressure of time constraints might cause some writers block for me. This definitely goes to show that different things work for different people.
So what is your preferred style? Social or solitary? Do you like word count competitions with a time constraint? I'll be doing Camp NaNoWriMo come August....gulp!
