The voices in my head...

It's my day to blog over at The Lady Killers, and our topic this week is "Voice."

When I was writing Wounded Earth, I took a correspondence course, so that I could get the story development and editing help of a published author. (This is a step that I highly recommend.)

I still remember getting an assignment back from her. After I'd made a particularly bold narrative statement, she'd written in the margin in orange ink, "What a voice you have!" Now she didn't say it was a great voice, and she didn't say whether or not it was to her taste. But I took her comment to mean that I sounded like myself.

Hop on over to The LadyKillers and see what else I had to say on the subject:

Because if nobody's over there reading it, then I'm just listening to the sound of my own voice...and all those other voices in my head...

  1. I'm on my way to Lady Killers. I'm sure the orange note was the highest compliment.

  2. Thanks, Mary. I decided to take it as a compliment, because the alternative was so dire.
