Young Glory, as aforementioned, was born on Flag Day at about 5:30 in the morning. We had irrigated the night before so the ground was wet and muddy. Therefore she ended up being born in a mud puddle. The whole clan gathered to watch, as we had done when Pumpkin gave birth, and it didn't appear to bother Dolly anymore then it had bothered Pumpkin. In fact both mares had seemed to enjoy the attention, and, as soon as both foals had been pushed to their feet they were shown off to the watching audience of people, horses, dogs, cat, rooster and sheep. I guess they just wanted to introduce them to the "family."
I instantly fell in love with Glory. She was a beautiful little bay mare. I trained her to respond to body language and would eventually ride her without a bridle. Once, however, this became a problem. Debbie wanted to ride her when I wasn't there and Dad put her up on Glory in the pasture. Debbie leaned forward. This meant "go." Glory went. Debbie leaned forward even more. This meant "race like the wind," and Glory 'raced' with Debbie hanging on like a frightened flea. Fortunately I showed up and called Glory to me before Debbie could fall off...
Of course I'm biased but Julie has a warm and inviting style of writing. It is prosaic and conveys quite naturally her feelings of the important ingredients of her life. There is nothing neo-stylistic about her writing. She goes directly to the heart, her emotions pure and non-pretentious.
Me, I might write something like: "...There on the sub-conscious fringe of some eternal truth my mind pondered the mystery of the universe, its ultimate relativity to me and my God..."
My words are styled differently, perhaps because of my pure love of words. Yes, I want there to be meaning to my writing but I wish to create an atmosphere with my words that can titillate the reader from a different perspective.
Two styles that say what the authors wish to say, both hopefully appealing from many points of view.
How do you describe your writing style?
