If my "style" tag is misplaced, feel free to whack me with an inflatable bat. Anyways. Do you guys have different writing voices for your different stories? I was surprised to discover I do. It seems that my protagonists dictate how their stories are told -- my vampire is an enormously happy individual, and so whenever I write about him I find myself using a much more informal tone, sometimes coming close to breaking the fourth wall. I haven't crossed that line yet, but he hasn't made it necessary yet. When I'm writing my fantasy thingy, I notice myself being much more concerned about having a professional tone to my writing - no smiles, no cheating, this is is a serious situation. My protagonist there doesn't seem to have a lighthearted bone in his body, so he demands everything written about him be perfect. Naturally, I find it more difficult to write this story well, because I can't/won't allow myself any room to play. Does your voice vary from story to story?
