Ouch, I had to write in someone else’s voice!

Writing is hard enough, but writing to sound like someone else really takes concentration. I was asked to write a blog entry for an international group and I found myself holding back, re-phrasing, perhaps struggling because I knew other people would hold me accountable.

My post is not through the approval yet, but when it does, I will be relieved.

So when my son told me he had gotten me a book by Roy Peter Clark for Mother’s Day, I was ecstatic. No matter how much you write, you will benefit from his tools.
