- Have you ever experienced a miscommunication where someone’s tone was misinterpreted? How do you think the miscommunication happened?
- How would you describe your writing voice?
- How similar do you think your writing voice is to your speaking voice?
- Who is your favourite author? Why do you like the way that author writes?
- When you communicate online, how do you make sure your audience understands your tone?
