V is for Voice

Remember Gildna Radner of Saturday Night Live fame?
She was the comedienne who made famous the line, "My name Roseann Roseanna Danna," along with the skit mistaking sex and violence for "sax and violins" summed up with my all time favorite line, "...Nevermind."
That's voice! The trick is to get it on paper.
When writing essay, article, book, pamphlet, even a simple grocery list, remember voice. Make your reader to see your words come alive on the page.
The writer’s voice casts a spell. The right voice makes the work accessible; it gives us the tone and point of view that best illuminate the material and make it shine."--Steven Pressfield
Until this time next time.
See you in print,
