THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOICE AND STYLE IN WRITING
Q: Could you define the difference between a writer’s voice and style in creative writing?—Ralph G.
Here’s the breakdown: Voice is your own. It’s a developed way of writing that sets you apart from other writers (hopefully). It’s your personality coming through on the page, by your language use and word choice. When you read a Dave Barry column, you know it’s his. Why? He’s developed a distinct writing voice.
Style is much broader than voice. Some writers have a writing style that’s very ornate—long, complex and beautiful sentences, packed with metaphors and imagery (think Frank McCourt and John Irving). Others have a more straightforward style—sparse prose, simple sentences, etc. (this is my style)
So when writing establish your own style and voice. Avoid mirroring the style and voice of other writers when writing your novel.
