"How do I know what I think until I see what I say?" ~ Stephen King

Notice that the demand for VOICE is EVERYWHERE! ~ Even in the workplace. Marketing demands that products have a "voice" that will appeal to buyers. Learning to recognize and write with voice is a life skill!

How important is format, packaging, publishing, or presentation in today's world?

It's been said that whatever it is that drives you CRAZY is the thing you were meant to change!

Name something that bothers you. The write a scene about your encounter with it. Then turn the scene into an opinion piece of writing, a news article, a blog post, or an article you will submit to a magazine.

Once Upon a Headline: Look at a newspaper and gather a headline from the day that GRABS you. Write this headline, or a variation of it, into your piece.

Digital Writing is here to stay. No matter WHAT you are writing, a publisher will require it to be submitted digitally. Notice the characteristics of magazines, newspapers, blog posts, travel brochures, cook-books, menus, and more.

Add dialogue using tone vocabulary to your article that clearly reveals your feelings about the issue.

Use imagery, detail, diction, tone, and syntax to CAPTURE this person/character.

Use dialogue to CAPTURE the LANGUAGE of these men.
What is the ATTITUDE of these boys? Capture it with TONE.

Now create "voices" for your characters.

Identify the traits, the characteristics, of your own personality...and your own voice. Write a short dialogue between you and someone your opposite. Write something EXACTLY like you say it. Spell it like you say it, Y'all!

The Day the Colors Quit: View the story and listen to the voice, identify the attitude, of each crayon.

Build into your story or piece of writing FACTS, DETAILS, and INFORMATION about your setting. Find photos and use imagery to paint a picture in the mind of the reader.
