NaBloPoMo Day 4 - How is your writing voice like you? How does your writing voice differ from you?
This is all me, yo. As I'm sure you could tell, I try to edit myself as little as possible here. It's all natural, free-frange, fly by the seat of my pants stuff. I only wish I would write more, especially some of the longer pieces that have been running through my mind for months and years.
However, I tend to make a lot more bad and nasty jokes in everyday life (that stuff goes on Twitter). I also tend to get extremely worked up about racism, sociopolitical inequality, and the patriarchy and then calm myself down with animated gifs (that stuff I save for Tumblr).
What do I avid talking about? Some family issues because I tend to rant, vociferous and unchecked, before I have time to process and take everything into consideration. I also filter a lot of my thoughts and experiences with my own mental health. I do it not out of shame but out of habit. It's easier on everyone. No one knows what to say when you tell them that you fantasize about death on a regular basis for weeks at a time and then don't think about it again.
So this is my voice, real and written, first draft and final, with only the finest line separating what it's okay and not okay to talk about. Do I want you guys to get to know me reading this site? Yes. Do I want to get to know myself writing it? Hell yes.
