12.10: Developing Your Own, Personal Style
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary, Dan, and Howard
We’re not talking about character voice here. We’re talking about your voice as a writer, your authorial style, and the aesthetics you employ, and how this is an expression unique to you. And with that definition out of the way, our discussion focuses around how we go about identifying, developing, and embracing our personal styles.
(And, of course, when this is something to actually worry about it.)
Liner Notes: here is Corinne Duyvis’ FAQ and commentary about the Twitter hashtag #ownvoices, and the movement it describes.
Credits: this episode was recorded in Cosmere House Studios by Dan Dan the Audioman Thompson, and mastered in a secret laboratory by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Take something written by someone else, which you did not like, and rewrite it in a way that makes it sound like you, with your voice.
Thing of the week: The Inklings: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Their Friends, by Humphrey Carpenter.
