253. Writing Like You Speak: Is it Fine?
Sep 02, 2021
Leandre Larouche

Many people write like they speak. While some people criticize the practice, some others welcome it. Today, many books self-published through Amazon are written as the author speaks. Is it right or is it wrong? Should you do it or not? The reality is that it’s not writing like we speak that makes a book professional or not; it’s how sentences and paragraphs are structured. You can write a very professional book like you speak; the trick is to give it enough meat and write sentences that sound nice. Unless you are writing an academic or another formal piece, you can absolutely write like you speak and it will make your writing fresh and authentic.
