A writer's voice...

"A writer's voice 
is not character alone, 
it is not style alone; 
it is far more. 
A writer's voice, 
like the stroke of an artist's brush--
is the thumbprint
 of her whole person--
her idea, wit, 
humor, passions, rhythms." 

~ Patricia Lee Gauch

I hadn't really thought about this before, but I agree with Gauch. I know when I write, I put my whole self into it. And whenever I read something written by someone else, I'm reading a thumbprint of that person....
