So I have been told a few times (or possibly more…) that I have a unique writing voice. I know people spend time researching how to build their voice, but somehow, without trying, I have already created one. Intriguing….
So of course…I googled it…
Writer’s voice is a literary term used to describe the individual writing style of an author. Voice is a combination of a writer’s use of syntax, diction, punctuation, character development, dialogue, etc., within a given body of text (or across several works). Voice can also be referred to as the specific fingerprint of an author, as every author has a different writing style.
I understand the concept, but I still don’t understand how mine is so unique. I’m not complaining of course…just trying to figure out how I can hone it and increase it’s awesomeness. Any ideas? I wonder if I’m so awesome because of all the voice lessons on Katie’s blog?
