Transcript of Writer's Voice
Don’t let pride get in the way of information
Don’t be misleading or dishonest
(i.e. “I am adamantly opposed to abortion” when you really haven’t considered the issue enough to know)
Don’t try to be someone/something you’re not
Find ways to make the assignment exciting
Control vocabulary, syntax, and attitude
Distinguish between formal and informal English
Finding your voice
Your “self” projected onto a page
Consists of style and tone
Style: arrangement and selection of words
Tone: overall attitude or feel of the piece
A baby crying
A love interest
A burning building
Holy cow Batman, what will we do?
One sunny day…
You’re a superhero
What are your powers?
I can be your hero baby!
Arrangement of words in a sentence
Avoid complex sentences
Keep each thought to itself
Don’t jump in at the deep end
Pick words to inform, not impress
Choice is situational :: get at true meaning
Most readers impressed by clarity, not big words
Who are you?
A writer’s voice
What determines voice?
Now send an email about what happened to your best friend.
(the master of funk)
Party like it’s 1999
Let's find a voice.
