Great article today on Voice over at Rachelle Gardner's blog.

As she says, voice is difficult to master.  It's one of many aspects of writing that I can see improving in my own work, while at the same time I know I have a long way yet to go.

I think one thing that helps is finally starting to narrow down what I want to say.  Having a unique voice comes in part from having unique goals, and I think I understand my own goals much better now than I did five years ago... or even one year ago.

Annie (my current character) was born out of meditating on the things I want to say and the ideas I want to explore, and I think of all my characters she has the most unique voice yet.

A big thanks to Rachelle Gardner for the inspiring post!
