How to Find Your “Voice” as a Writer

Voice is one of the most important elements of any great writer. No doubt about it.

Without a unique “voice”, they wouldn’t have had so many readers.

But what is this voice, exactly? And how can you make it come through in your writing?

Well, let’s think of voice. Some have a deep tonality, a certain way of articulating words. They have a style. They talk like no one else you ever met. Others have this squeaky voice that sounds like scratching a blackboard with your fingernails, and even though what they’re saying could make a lot of sense, and it could be something witty and smart, you can’t wait for them to shut up, because you can’t understand a thing they’re saying anyway.

Well, the same is true for your writing. No one can hear you, but they can feel you through the words you use and how you choose to use them.

Odds are that you are struggling to find your voice as a writer. To find that style. Odds are that you are also putting a lot of pressure on yourself to be unique. To write like no one else before you.

If only you knew how simple it really is.

You just got to write like yourself.

  1. This is month 3 for me. I may be lucky as I can only seem to produce anything my way, can’t do it any other way. It’s my voice,partly my 1st person narrators voice. it’s a bit different, I think. I’ll enjoy doing more of it. Have fun while you’re doing it if you can :)

  2. I have too many voices in me crying to be heard, and some of them are our common voices, and then there’s mine that just wants to talk about myself. I don’t like my voice. It’s… weird.
