Voice Development part 1A Lesson by Camille Corbett
It's time to get down to business!
In order to understand what we are trying to accomplish in this little segment, let's define what the hell "voice" is!
1.The author's style, the quality that makes his or her writing unique, and which conveys the author's attitude, personality, and character.
2.Voice is the characteristic speech and thought patterns of a first person narrator; a persona. Because voice has so much to do with the reader's experience of a work of literature, it is one of the most important elements of a piece of writing.
Okay for lesson one, I want you to define in your own words, what you think voice is and write a paragraph that you think best exhibits your voice. Leave it as a comment or message it to me. I will tell you whether you are on the right track or not. So for now, chao dearies!
