It's my style

All writers have different styles, but is it really a difference in 'style' to leave out prepositions, basic punctuation and to not use such "stylistic" devices such as 'paragraphs', 'sentences', 'plot', 'sequencing / timelines', 'working mechanics of a scene' and 'characters'?

I don't think so, but many seem to think it is. To this I say, good luck in your writing travels... it might be a long, lonely journey...

The Angela's Ashes man (Frank McCourt I think though I might have the spelling wrong) had a weird way with writing and I thought it odd that he was famous whereas a kid doing that in class would be corrected.

As for gerard manly hopkins (was it he who dispensed with capitals?) well, sometimes an oddity of style IS part of a poem. There's oddity of style and then there's just plain clumsy though.

Sometime the oddity of how a poem is written, IS the poem...I believe that too...and in my writing, I've often made note of that...

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
