3 Reasons Why You Are Ridiculously Wrong About “Never Write Like You Talk”!

Blog Content Tips, Blogging, Featured

Recently, I read a post on a very popular writing blog that gave the following advice:

“Don’t write like you talk !”

In fact, the author went on to say that…

It Was the Worst Piece of
Writing Advice
She’d Ever Heard !

My first thought was that maybe the author was right… writing like you talk sounds like a bad idea on the surface… but then I realized that her advice was total bullshit, and here’s why:

1. Not Writing Like You Talk Changes Your Process

Even when we’re not talking out loud, most of us have a running narrative going in our head. This narrative often reflects the way we speak, and while it might be a bit more confident, neurotic, or vulgar, it’s the voice we are used to speaking with. Trying to alter that voice in order to create a 2nd personality is not only difficult, but…

Foolish !

We’ve had years of perfecting our own communication skills, namely the way we speak, so why would we suddenly try to recreate a separate voice for the purpose of writing? Many of my best posts are written when I’m able to convert my inner narrative into prose, often word for word.

Why Would I
Alter that ?

2. That’s What Editing is for…

The author’s reason for not writing like we speak is that she’ll include too many um’s, ah’s, and expletives, to which I reply…

That’s What the
Fucking Edit Button
is for !

Of course we don’t speak flawlessly at all times, but that’s the beauty of computers – we can write, edit, add, and remove as we see fit. As a blogger, I often spend more time editing my work than creating it, which I’ve grown accustomed to over time.

That’s What
Good Bloggers and
Writers Do !

To expect yourself to get it right the first time, every time, is ridiculous, and furthermore, if you aren’t taking the opportunity to make mistakes…

How Would You Ever
Improve Your Writing ?

3. You Get to Improve Twice

If you’re writing like you speak, and getting better at it, then you are getting better at both types of communication. As you learn to train your inner, outer, and written narratives, you become a better filter, and as a result…

A Much Better Orator and
Blogger !

I’m much less interested in being perfect to all people at all times than I am in learning, getting better, and growing as a blogger and a person. Trying not to write like you speak is not only disadvantageous…

It’s Fake !

What do you think? Have you read the post? Do you find that you write like you speak, or do you have a second writing voice that’s nothing like your normal dialogue? Let’s chat in the comments.
