Haha, this turned out to be a funny thread. I recognize some, Serenity and Doreen, for sure, others sometimes. I will admit when Irish Rose started writing under another name, I did not know it was her. Same when Maureen became Wynter, it took awhile. SO I gues I am not that good at it.

There are only two poets I can definately tell by style.  Unfortunately, neither of them posts any more. Wicked Witch of the East and Mike, where did y'all disappear to?  
In a more serious vein, generally, the better the poet, the easier it is to distinguish their style.  David2, Meadowmuse, H.Arlequin, Michael, Gunslinger, and Skyfyre come to mind as far as infrequent or former posters.

Hmm, although my "style" of writing is easily recognized, I, too, believe I could fool most of you because like most, I choose a method of writing that I enjoy, and except for the technical aspects, believe I could change my "style" and tone anytime I wanted.  I could even learn the technical aspects and write "technically correct" items,
like most any of you (and in many ways I really highly respect those of you that do),
but am satisfied with the meagerness of what I do.

I don't believe everyone has a distinct style (some do), though most do have a recognizable style they use. Heck, if it works why change it - is an attitude most of us have, though a lot do play with different ways of presentation - quite successfully too. And some - gee, they just do "anything" and it's successful.

Is style limiting?  I don't think so. The only limitation to any "style" is the ability to add freshness to the subject, which in most cases is nothing new, the only newness being how it was presented, and I think we all suffer with that, some of you so much less than most of us. I mean, how may poems have been written about a particular subject??? How many more can be written about it???  Interestingly???

Normally I look at WHAT was written, then the WRITER (although some names do connontate excellence - TITLES draw me in - a good title, to me, opens doors), and praise the writer for the piece, whom ever.  And, of course, excellence, in other than technical aspects, is in the eyes of the individual reader.

Gee, guess I've gotten too serious here...but what the heck...

Loved the question PDV...gives one pause.

I don't know that I have a style that's like anyone else's.

Perhaps, I should go back and read myself.

Thank you.
