Welcome back to The Writing Apothecary podcast and I’m so excited that we’re looking at a new topic for the whole month. And this month we’re looking at Voice!
We’re looking at Voice!! And something I really love to work on with my own writing and my clients is differentiating my own writerly voice from that of my characters. It’s a bit tricky to get the balance right, but when you do? You’re a step closer to an amazing book.
Here are some of the takeaways from the podcast:
- Voice is that something special that your story needs, without it, your piece doesn’t have any life.
- It’s easy to lose the dimension of voice and trying to separate yourself as a writer and the character is a hard thing to do. Don’t feel discouraged.
- To find our character’s voice we need to strip it back and look at who they are and what they would do in a situation, not what we would do.
Tell me what did you take away from this weeks lesson?
I’d love to know.
