V is for Voice

Finding your voice as a writer is one of the most important and difficult part of being a writer, I still struggle with it myself. It is my understanding that a writer’s voice is unique and authentic for each individual and if you haven’t discovered it your writing can feel stilted and off key. I believe writing from the heart, with intention and honesty, is a great place to start.


Have you found your voice in your writing? How have you explored writing from your authentic voice?

    • Yes but I think the voice I’m mostly talking about is the one that allows a writer to get their truth down onto the page, without censor. Often writers are afraid to speak their truth and their voice comes across as stilted or just boring. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. =)

  1. Yes, I have found my voice but it was a difficult path. Finding your voice in my opinion, means knowing yourself so intimately that it suddenly your inner voice develops as you increase your writing time. You can’t explain it. It happens. One day you wake up and you know, I’ve got it.

  2. I just write the way I write. My sister tells me she recognizes one of my stories the minute she begins to read it. So, guess I’ve found it. I do agree with one of the others, I think your voice can change, depending on the genre and experience. Thanks for making this challenge a success.
