Don't you love catchy titles like the one above? I do too, and always strive to do something fun with them. I even do this with books, but I digress. This is not the subject for today's blog post.
Rather, voice is. And in case you never noticed, my blog posts are done in my voice, and my books are also. How do I know? Well, they sound like me. Sort of.
No, you cannot capture voice as dialog, because to read how one really talks would be tedious to say the least, but rather, voice is the nuance of our personality. Yes, I am a very fun person. Yes, my voice is fun. That is sort of why some folks say "that Kim, she is a young adult author, she has that kind of voice". Okay, maybe fun doesn't make me sound that way, but maybe YOUNG is the focus.
I write in a young, carefree voice. Even when I write deep dark horror, it sounds fun, or young.
So, what does your writing voice sound like?
