What is tone of voice?

Tone of voice is not what we say, but how we say it. It’s not what we write, but how we write it. Your tone is how you communicate your personality, how you feel about what you’re writing about, and what you think about your audience.

Hot Tip: There are four dimensions to tone of voice: humorous/serious, formal/casual, respectful/irreverent, enthusiastic/matter-of-fact.
