Voice!!

Writing in the right voice is really important if you want to impact your reader. Consider: your intended audience and point of view from which your story is narrated. If you’re writing from the point of view of a 5 year old, make sure that you are convincing!!!

“Don’t say the old lady screamed. Bring her on and let her scream.” – Mark Twain

When you write stories, narrative, use description to “paint a picture” for your reader. Allow them to imagine your story by giving them descriptive detail. This can be done with:
-sensory detail (what do you see, hear, smell etc…)
-action (describe what the character does that allows the reader to infer how they feel)
-dialogue (what would they say if they were scared? or angry? or sad?)
