Description: Would you mistake Brad Pitt’s voice for Bill O’Reilly’s? What about a gangsta rapper with Carrie Underwood? Why do you read certain authors? It’s called “voice,” often referred to as “tone” or “mood" or “style.” Your writing personality, original thoughts, personal feelings, worldview, and how you interpret life distinguishes your writing from other writers. Paulette Harris provides insights on allowing your voice to shine through your writing.
