Signs of spring. Picture taken in Santa Fe.

I once asked an editor at a writer's conference what is it that excited him about a manuscript. His reply, "Voice." Voice is hard to define. Some say it is style; others say it isn't. Some say it is tone; some say not. To me, voice is unique to a writer. There is an excellent article on http://www.write101.com/lethamfind.htm that you might find helpful. There's also an article on http://verlakay.blogspot.com/ (Verla Kay's April 26 blog) on writing tips for picture books, which includes some comments on voice. Both are super interesting.
