    Terri: I love this post. I personally think that "voice" is one of the most important things in writing a book. I know it's what keeps drawing me back to certain authors. I love John Sandford's voice as he writes in his "Prey" novels, and, to me, it's instantly recognizable. There are others I feel the same way about, and then there are some whose voice doesn't resonate with me. Give five authors the same story to tell and you'll get five different books. It's always nice to be reminded of voice, and your chart does a wonderful job of that, explaining it better than I've seen before. Thanks!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
