Podcast: Defining Your Writing Voice

Podcast 1

This is my first ever podcast!!!!!!!!!

And I did it in a submarine! (JK, but I plan to upgrade my mic in the future.)

In it, I share three thoughts on “defining your writing voice”.
#1. Your writing voice should be your character’s voice
#2. Your writing voice will vary by genre AND story length
#3. Your writing voice is YOUR voice

Tell me in the comments what you think defines and affects YOUR writing voice. Nature or nurture?

  1. “We’re gonna die effect”…. LOL! Seriously, though, I don’t care if things are cliche- if it’s awesome, it’s awesome. 😛 However…. killing character’s isn’t awesome! I love my characters too much to kill them. ducks and hugs them
    Great tips here, and right on! Thanks! Personally, I believe that if writing is a gift from God… you shouldn’t try and focus so much on what’s ‘right’- if it’s in YOU, DO IT. 🙂 That’s what I think…

    1. I actually don’t kill as many characters as I think I do. They are mostly nameless, faceless “stormtroopers”. 😉

      Personally, I can’t feel it very well so I have to get advice and critique, but maybe that’s the same difference as there is between plotters and pantsers?

  2. Sorry, didn’t listen. But . . .

    Happy birthday!!!!!! 🙂 (Someone said you were getting older. We won’t mention names, but she also has a blog and, interestingly enough, has the same last name. Hmmm.) Anyway, I hope your day is wonderful.

  3. So much fun sitting on your bed and laughing hysterically at you while you recorded this over and over. Sorry. 😄

    No really– Great stuff, Paul! I especially like “Thought 3”. It makes a lot of sense and it’s definitely something I’ve had to keep in mind for Country Girl recently!
