Rewriting content to match your personal voice is an integral part of establishing a unique brand, whether for a blog, social media, or professional writings. Yet, it’s a challenge many content creators face, as it can be time-consuming to rework entire articles to sound more like “you.” Fortunately, there are strategies to streamline this process, allowing for a more authentic voice without an inordinate time investment. Here are some efficient ways to rewrite content to match your voice:

Understand Your Voice

Before you begin rewriting any content, you must have a clear understanding of what your “voice” is. Your voice is how you express your personality through writing. It includes your tone, the words you choose, the rhythm of your sentences, and the perspectives you share. Spend some time reading content you admire and content you’ve written that feels particularly “you.” Take note of the specific characteristics that make it unique. Is it witty, conversational, informative, or a mix?

Create a Voice Chart

Develop a voice chart that details aspects of your voice. Break it down into categories such as tone, language, purpose, and rhythm. Under each category, list the specific attributes you want to embody in your writing. For example, if your tone is informal, you might prefer contractions and colloquial language. This chart becomes your roadmap for rewriting content to match your voice.

Use a Structured Approach

Instead of rewriting content from scratch, use the original piece as a scaffold:

  1. Read for Comprehension: Understand the content thoroughly before you start rewriting it.
  2. Identify Key Points: Break the content down into its main ideas. This gives you a clear framework of what needs to be conveyed in your own words.
  3. Rewrite Section by Section: Tackle the content piece by piece, rather than all at once, to ensure each part reflects your voice without getting overwhelmed.

Employ Technology Wisely

Make use of digital tools to save time. Grammar checkers and editing software can speed up the rewriting process by catching errors and suggesting stylistic changes. Voice-to-text software can also be helpful; you can speak what you want to write in your own voice, and then edit the transcribed text accordingly.

Practice with Prompts

When time permits, practice rewriting short prompts in your voice. This exercise can sharpen your rewriting skills, making the process faster and more intuitive. The more you practice, the better you’ll become at quickly infusing your personality into pre-written content.

Focus on Vocabulary and Syntax

Two of the quickest ways to imbue a piece of writing with your voice are through vocabulary and sentence structure. Substitute words that sound like you and rework sentences to follow a pattern you prefer. For example, if you’re a fan of complex sentences and a rich vocabulary, make sure your rewritten content includes these elements.

Imitate Speaking Patterns

Many writers find that their writing voice closely mirrors their speaking voice. If this is true for you, try reading the content out loud and then rewriting it as if you were explaining it to someone verbally. This can help to make the content sound more natural and more like you.

Insert Personal Anecdotes or Examples

Nothing speaks more to your voice than your own experiences. If appropriate, weave in personal anecdotes or examples that reflect your point of view. This not only adds originality to the content but also ensures it aligns with your personal brand.

Ask for Feedback

Sometimes you’re too close to your work to be objective about whether it truly matches your voice. Getting feedback from others who are familiar with your voice can be an eye-opening experience. They might point out inconsistencies in tone or suggest areas where the writing could be more personalized.

Keep the Original Intent

While it’s important to rewrite content in your own voice, be mindful of maintaining the original message. Distorting the facts or changing the meaning is not the goal; expressing the same ideas in a new way is.

Edit Ruthlessly

Once you’ve rewritten the content, go back and edit ruthlessly. Cut out anything that doesn’t sound like you or doesn’t serve the purpose of the piece. This can also include removing jargon, filler words, or complex language that doesn’t align with your personal style.

Be Consistent

Consistency is key to making your rewritten content resonate with your audience. If you’re inconsistent, it can confuse readers and dilute your brand. Make sure your voice is consistent across all platforms and types of content.

Time Management

To avoid spending “tons of hours” rewriting, it’s crucial to manage your time effectively. Set a timer for each rewriting session to maintain a brisk pace and hold yourself accountable. Allocate time based on the length and complexity of the content – don’t spend an hour on a piece that should take 15 minutes.

Rewriting content to match your voice doesn’t have to be a daunting time sink. With a clear understanding of your voice, the use of structured approaches, leveraging technology, and practicing regularly, the process becomes both more manageable and more efficient. Remember, the aim is to communicate the original message in a way that is authentically you, so keep the intent of the content intact while making it resonate with your unique style. By following these guidelines, you’ll ensure that your rewritten content is not only engaging and genuine but also a true reflection of your personal or brand voice.
