As a music lover, I’ve long noted a preference for male vocals.  This fact became obvious when I tried listing female singers in my collection for a Thursday Thirteen.  That effort reminded me of a very different voice – from the written word.  Music is about the sound first and foremost, the story and emotion it carries like icing on the cake.

The written word, for me, is different in that I don’t care about the voice telling the story.  That doesn’t appear to be a popular notion these days but I stand by it.  Tell your story however you will, from whatever POV, just give me believable characters in an interesting tale.

Opining about this during a personal dry writing spell, I guess my goal is partly to hush my own inner critic.  I hope I’ve done the same for you and we’ll all get to enjoy more story.  Happy writing!
