finding your writing voice

finding your writing voice

I work with many first-time novelists, and the question of voice always comes up.

“Do you think I have a voice?” asks the first-time novelist.

“Should it be in a different voice?” he wonders, as if voice is something we shop for at the store.

“How do I find my voice?” she asks, desperately, like it’s something she lost.

You already have a voice. Making art is not about right and wrong, it’s about telling the truth on the page. If you’re a new writer, embrace your unique perception of the world.
