Building Your Writing Success
Define Your Voice
The only difference between you and other writers is the voice you use to tell the story. You have a unique style, a unique perspective, a unique lilt to your words. When you discover that voice then you are one step closer to building your writing success.
First, write without expectations. Invest a few days writing free-form content. Review what you’ve written and see if you find any common elements.
Second, ask others that you trust (and that have read some of the content that makes you most proud) what they see in your writing. Descriptive words will help you find your voice.
Finally, keep evaluating your writing. The more elements crop up in what you are doing the more you will be able to embrace your voice.
