by Richard Rowell, Write W.A.V.E. Media Staff
It’s a well-documented phenomenon that one often writes in a much different style than in which he or she speaks. I know for a fact that this is most certainly the case with me. I am a far better writer than speaker and not only in public speaking. I’ve had the tendency to misspeak on many occasions in ways that simply do not happen in my writing. I’m far better composed in writing than I am in speech. When I’m speaking on a topic that I am well versed in and knowledgeable about, though, I can at least sound reasonably intelligent.
In speaking, I have a way of stating the incredibly obvious without even consciously realizing it. Again, this does not happen in writing, unless some sort of sarcasm or “tongue-in-cheek” humor is intended. These differences between my own writing and my own speech patterns could make a very fascinating and in-depth study into the functioning of my own mind. Not being a social scientist, however, I’m not sure just how accurate my observations will be. To be honest, I’m far more curious about how others perceive the differences between their writing and speaking styles in contrast to how others perceive the differences. That would make for quite an interesting discussion.
On that note, how different do you feel your writing styles and speaking styles vary? Do others ever comment on those differences? Or do you feel that your writing and speaking are actually much the same?
