Patti had so much to say about voice. Here are a few notes, a few tidbits, Vijaya.
She said to be aberrant and don't iron out your voice, that the bumps and impurities are what make your voice.
Voice is usually conversational and intimate.
"Attitude should drive the story, the chapters. Voice has opinions, thoughts."
We did four writing exercises which we shared with a partner (a different partner after each exercise). I don't want to say much more but it was so worthwhile.
Anyhow, there you go. Just a few examples.
