Whose voice shows up when you write?
Sometimes I can feel when my writer’s voice struggles to find her footing and life on the page. Other times she shows up and dances freely, tossing verbs and adjectives about like confetti at a ticker-tape parade.
If I don’t write every day, my writer’s voice sulks. She sulks, pouts, and plays hide-in-seek, until I lure her from the secret places of my mind. Ms. Balla is right. Free writing does help to lure my writer voice forward.
How did you find your special writing style or voice?
I’d love to hear your experiences. Share in the comments section any tips that might help me or other writers to tame our fickle unique writing voice.
