Don’t Lose Your Voice

00:00 / 8:03


Can you lose your voice when writing? Of course!

But it can sometimes be challenging to figure out when that’s happened.

This week’s episode:

  • defines voice in writing
  • describes the difference between voice and tone
  • offers a question to ask yourself to identify your voice
  • presents a possible solution to figure out if you’ve lost your voice

I reference this excellent post by Julie Wildhaber for Grammar Girl, “Understanding Voice and Tone in Writing.”

And I offer as one way to possibly discover your voice.

Also, don’t forget my upcoming Writing Workshops Dallas seminar, “Should I Self-Publish or Seek Traditional Publishing,” on Sunday, Feb. 18, from 1-3 p.m., which you can attend in person or via live stream.

And I’m the most recent featured interview on a new podcast, PastorWriter, where pastor and author Chase Replogle and I talk about editing and the difficulty of being objective about one’s own writing.
