My Own Voice!

In class we are just beginning to read “On Writing Well” By William Zinsser. The focus of the three chapters for this post was all about memoirs and learning to have your own voice when writing. What made this really interesting about how Zinsser presented this information, was his use of examples. He showed how every different memoir writer has their own style of writing, non are alike.

Writing about yourself is one of the best ways to develop your voice. This is because by writing about yourself and your live events you begin to know who you are. This sense of self is the most helpful in creating your own style.
