According to the Free Dictionary, voice in writing is “The distinctive style or manner of expression of an author or of a character in a book.” In elementary school, we were taught to use voice in our writing. Voice in writing endears the reader to the writer, because it feels so much more personal when it feels like the writer has a presence in his or her words. I’ve noticed that this same concept concept applies to personalities. There are just some special snowflakes out there. People we’ve met that just stick in our mind long after we meet them. Maybe it’s the one guy who just has that gravity, because every word he speaks and action he takes is deliberate and calculated, or that other girl whose laugh was so genuine and real that you couldn’t help laughing along too. It’s a trait falls into that category of magical things that aren’t measurable but are immediately identifiable. And we think about these people, at least unconsciously, in awe – not out of admiration, but out of novelty, for they show us that there is a kind of human we’ve never met before.
