Meg Rosoff on “Your Writing Voice

Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.
 – Meg Rosoff, Novelist, Author of How I Live Now

Tomorrow on Bookshelf Battle…

I’m going to have a special announcement.

Will it be…

a)  So big that it will take people’s attention away from the big sporting contest I hear will be taking place?

b)   that all of my readers will get free Kindle fires?  Even my Aunt Gertie?

c)  that the dawning of the Age of Aquarius is finally here?

d) that I have acquired a guest spot on Game of Thrones, in which I inspire everyone with my near victory, only to be murdered in a gruesome and unexpected manner?

e)  None of the above?

Whoa nelly, such suspense!  Stop by tomorrow to find out!
