In academic writing, voice comes down to small habits and personal preferences.-having a distinctive, persuasive voice is crucial to engaging your audience. it may be tempting to use fancy vocabulary in the hopes of making your writing stand out, but that would not be your genuine style. there are no quick ways to give yourself a recognizable voice. pay attention to how you say things what words you use, what sorts of phrases and sentence structures you favor, even what kind of punctuation appears in your work frequently. these are the choices that will eventually become markers of your authorial voice.
