When writing, I often find myself using the same basic descriptive words when talking about someone’s voice. I’ll often say it’s high-pitched or it’s husky or it’s soft-spoken, but that’s as far as my list goes.
It can really help your writing when you have a variety of descriptive words to use, particularly when it comes to the voice.
I found this wonderful resource from MacMillian a few years ago, and I always go back to it when I’m struggling while writing about someone’s voice. I think about how I hear the voice in my head, and then using this thesaurus, I am able to find the perfect word to describe it.
