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 tagcrowd.com 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.
