Okay I figured out my question that I posted before. But can you please explain to me what this means? Style is not applied to writing. It is the writing. I don't understand what that means. Thank You

    Style is the writing that you read. Style is the choice of words the author uses.

    Consider these words from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar."

    "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
    I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him;
    The evil that men do lives after them,
    The good is oft interred with their bones, "

    Someone might say the same thing, using these words:

    "Hey, Dudes!
    Caesar's dead, and I won't badmouth him.
    Folks remember the bad things about people. But they don't remember the good things."

    Big difference in style, isn't there?
