Over the course of the next month, I plan to write a blog series on writing. Now true enough there’s a lot of blogs out there that focus on writing but I guarantee none will have my voice and style.
Speaking of voice and style- what’s yours? How do you determine your voice or style? Do you prefer to write in first person or third, maybe a mix of both? Yes, you can use both in one piece- I don’t care what anyone says (unless it’s for a school essay in which case, please follow the assignment).
To keep it simple: style and voice contribute to the readability of your WIP (work in progress). Your choice of words, the writing techniques that you may use (i.e. metaphors, similes, etc), and tone all contribute to readability.
