Posted by IGN on Tuesday, February 10, 2020 12:38:31Snowflakes aren’t just cool, they’re actually kinda fun to write, according to some of the most prolific writers on the Internet.
As The Verge’s Jason Schreier explains, writers and their editors are often drawn to the idea of “emotionally powerful writing,” because it makes them feel something.
But in a way, writing about snowflake-related topics is a “more personal experience” because it lets you talk about your emotions, like what it’s like to be alone in a snowy town.
That doesn’t mean that the most important thing in the world isn’t to write something good about snowflake culture, Schreid writes.
It’s all about the “how.”
“We’ve seen this phenomenon evolve over time,” he writes.
“People are more likely to write in a personal way if they have a strong emotional connection to the subject, and a strong personal connection to their subject, to their culture, and to the people they’re writing about.
But if you’re writing a book, that’s different.
If you’re a writer, that might be the thing that makes you write good.
So it’s more personal.”
I feel like I’ve had this opportunity to do something really cool, and I feel like it’s a good thing that I’ve taken it on, too, Schleier writes.
If there’s one thing I learned from the last few years, it’s that when you’re in the business of writing, you have to be willing to do more than just write about your own personal experience.
“When you’re trying to do this work, it feels like you’re doing this work because you have something to say, and there’s nothing else you could do,” he says.
“You want to say something that will resonate with the audience.
You want to make a positive impact.
You don’t want to do a bad job of it, and you don’t like being criticized.”
