That pesky voice thing

Trying to figure out what exactly "voice" means when it comes to your writing?

Read Beth's post on what was missing from The Last Airbender for an excellent example.

That was a great explanation. Thanks to Beth. Nice to know what the movie was. I was wondering. I've heard so many complaints about that movie. Now I guess I know what's wrong with it.

So that's what it was.

Also, figure I better follow you since not only did you come follow my poor, abandoned blog, I pretty much did a poor man's copy of your assessment over at NB's (admittedly, I hadn't seen yours up yet, but when I did, I felt a bit cheap ;), and based on your Apex cred, it appears that you also have horror writing tendencies.

Hah! That's funny, because after seeing you in a finalist and then seeing we shared the same opinion about this last page crit, I figured I'd check out your blog. :)

It's ironic - the Apex cred - because I think mine ended up being more sci-fi than horror! :D

Then again, I am writing a novel about zombies right now, even though it isn't really about zombies...ah, the complications of our writely minds. :}
