Listening to your moi moi voice

October 24, 2008  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: The Craft   2 Comments

I have been thinking of voice lately. One of my favorite definitions:

Voice can be defined as the writer’s awareness and effective use of such elements as diction, tone, syntax, unity, coherence and audience to create a clear and distinct “personality of the writer,” which emerges as a reader interacts with the text.

This little gem of a page is from the Greece Central School District. Yes it’s for K-12 English Teachers. Do not underestimate the power of a good web page explaining a complex topic.

Voice is everything. I have read things that were fodder for the recycle bin, but continued because the author had an engaging voice. Critical thinking and voice: my mantra!

    Thank you for the nice compliment!

    If I had more wine I might tell you about the benign click-through to your blog. But Jessica took it.

    Men have been giving wine to young women since the drink was invented, those thousands of years ago.

    Prohibition laws are not going to change this. Not then, not now, not ever. Such is the nature of a fine bottle of wine, made with loving care and attention from our honored friends in Spain.

    No, the crime here was Jessica kissed someone else, and skooched off with my wine. This was not how my evening was supposed to go!
