Last month I was asked to talk about Writers’ Voice to a fellow writer and blogger, Natasha Hanova, and I’m so glad I agreed to be interviewed, because her questions made me really think about how writers infuse their manuscripts not only with their own Voices, but with the many diverse Voices of their characters, as well. No wonder so many of us are thought of as a bit “odd” or eccentric–we have to carry all those Voices (aka Multiple Personalities!) around in our heads.
If you are a fiction writer, how do YOU juggle all those Voices competing for your time and energy? How do you know when it’s time to let some of them speak for themselves?
