Many writers can see the difference between their own work and that of the writers they admire. Developing and refining your own voice on the page will take your books, essays, and even blog posts and social media to the next level. We’ll examine how to break rules to fulfill your unique narrative style and how mimicking favorite writers improves our own work. We’ll examine when to use a simile and when to use a metaphor, what the heck a modal verb is (and why they muddy up our prose), and get a ruling on when, exactly, we should use an adverb.
