  1. the full voice comes through…it’s not just a writing technique…have you ever communicated with someone and when you see a piece of their writing, unsigned, you can recognize them in it? some write with an unmatched cadence. I once wrote with a man from Russia. I could tell he was Russian before he spoke with me on the phone. His paragraphs and an accent.


    • Absolutely, and yes I have. And I agree, it isn’t just writing technique. Whenever I see an article, or interview on ‘voice’ I turn it off, look away, etc. That’s not for me. I sit, I write. When I have time anyway. My two year old is my priority. Hence the very short poems and flash fiction. Speaking of cadence, in my opinion, Hemingway was a master. Cheers.
