Just a quick note...
A lot of great points and questions came up in the comments of yesterday's post. I've been wanting to do a post on voice anyway, and this is a great segue into it. Unfortunately, my day got slammed, so I won't have time until later today to post.
If anyone has any additional comments or questions about style, voice and editing it out for "good" writing, post away and I'll add them in. This is all important stuff and it's good to talk about it, since it confuses (and frustrates) so many writers out there.
EDIT: Wednesday got away from me, and I forgot I had a guest blogger on Thursday (great post for picture book writers!) so Friday will be a Real Life Diagnostic with a reader who sent in a perfect example of everything we've been talking about. And I suspect this general topic might continue some next week as there's really a lot to it.
