I would like J.R.R. Tolkien’s writing ability, because boy oh boy did that man have a gift for both the use of languages and story-telling. I would love to become a fourth as talented as he was someday. That being said, there is no way I would exchange my writing style for anyone else. I’ve had so many people tell me that they could pick a writing sample of mine out of a line up, which means I have a voice that is uniquely mine. And from what I’ve heard other people say, a voice that doesn’t sound like somebody else is very hard to come by.
