I decided to do a NaBloPoMo post today and post my Breaking Taboo post Thursday.
Wednesday’s NaBloPoMo prompt was: How is your writing voice like you? How does your writing voice differ from you?
This is something I’ve honestly never considered. My voice depends on what type of writing I’m doing. There’s a work voice and a school voice and different voices for two vastly different blogs, therefore I don’t have just one writing voice or style.
As far as my blogs, this blog is mostly my voice. If you knew me in person this is some of what I may say and how I might say it. As time goes on I’m sure you’ll see a lot more of who I actually am — brutally honest, snarky, funny, witty, and as my sister says, “crazy as a road lizard.”
My second blog is my short story blog. My voice is distinctly male when I attach a gender to it. I’ve tried writing in a female’s voice and I am super uncomfortable with it and as a result those stories are pretty awkward. Not sure why, since I am female. Something to look into.
