Senior Editor at Boyds Mills Press, Kim Griswell, said that “a writer with voice has the ability to illuminate the ordinary.” A better definition of voice I have not yet come across.
Voice is that unique quality that designates a piece of writing as uniquely yours. It is a sound in your style that comes straight from your heart onto the written page. Voice identifies you, and no one else, as the writer of your piece.
Voice is also that rare ability to take an ordinary phrase or sentence and make it extraordinary. Why not try your hand at rewriting the following sentences according to your voice. Then share them with us so that we can applaud your unique writing voice. 🙂
1) The dog ran across the street.
2) The birds flew through the air.
3) The child chased the rainbow.
