I'm over at From the Write Angle today talking about infusing your query with your Voice. Hope you'll pop on over and check it out!
Voice is hard to describe yet it's very obvious when it's there ... and when it's not.
I like reading a wide variety of different Voices. I definitely enjoy some Voices I could never emulate or create. I remember reading Erma Bombeck's hilarious accounts of her real life when I was in elementary school. Love her stuff but it's not a style/voice I could ever write.
I like the flowing fantasy style of Tolkien, the literary loveliness of LMM Montgomery, the darkness of so many dystopian writers.
But would my Voice be able to pull off any of these? Nope.
Maybe some day.
What about you? Do you enjoy reading Voices that are very different from your own?
