Revising for VOICE

Voice – Your writer’s voice should create an unforgettable experience for the reader. Use dialogue well to help accomplish this.

When you revise for voice, check to make sure your writer’s voice is sincere and shows feelings. Also make sure that the dialogue you use helps to reveal each speaker’s personality. Ask yourself these two questions:

  1. Is my personal voice heard in my narrative? (sincere and full of real feelings)
  2. Does my dialogue show each speaker’s personality? (sounds natural, expresses true thoughts and feelings, and helps the reader get to know each speaker)
