QOD (4writers) “Voice”

Another gem from Jade Walker:

“The good writer develops his own voice, her own voice. You just can’t do that if you don’t listen to yourself. And the best way to listen to yourself is to read to yourself — out loud. Listen for the cadence — or the discordance. Listen for the beat — and the offbeat. Listen for the rhyme and the reason. Sometimes, you’ll hear the jarring word, the awkward phrase — the word that looked just fine but sounded junky, the phrase that typed nice but sounded clunky. So, talk.” –Michael Gartner
