"Finding Your Own True Voice"
by Donna McDine
Freelance writers need to study their craft through reading books in the genre they wish to write, attend writers workshops, and participate in critique groups. While all three are important in developing your writing skills, when should you step away and write for pure joy to let your own unique voice shine through?
Yes, the basics are imperative but if we allow ourselves to be constrained by the rules and try to replicate the successful authors before us, we will surely not succeed and become stifled. Let your creativity flow and you will most likely surprise yourself with a unique story to share.
For those who think they are not a writer, think again. No matter what occupation you hold our writing skills are put to the test on a daily basis. From the basic business letter, correspondence to our child's teacher, email, blog postings (such as the inspiring Blogelina Epic Post) to countless other ways, we have opportunities galore to let our voice/words shine through.
For many years I worked in Corporate America and correspondence needed to remain strictly professoinal, with no voice of personal opinion. With the ever changing technology at the forefront, especially blogging, it provides us all the opportunity to write and speak from the heart on matters important to us as individuals.
What do you do on a daily basis to let your own True Voice be heard?
Looking forward to an exhilirating exchange of ideas.
All the best!
