The Writer’s Voice
What is a writer’s voice? Each writer has a distinct voice, one that immediately envelops you like a soft blanket, that is, if you like it.
One of the definitions Merriam-Webster provides is “the faculty of utterance.” In other words, the ability to say something. Ernest Hemingway had a voice, James Patterson has a voice, and Anne Lamott has her own voice. I don’t know what my voice is. I wouldn’t know if it were good, bad, interesting, or unusual. Perhaps that’s why I need to continue writing and keep practicing. Keep writing ’til I find my voice.
And oh! The things I can utter!
