Author’s Voice & How To Find It

The writer’s voice is simply who you are. But finding your author’s voice can often seem daunting. Many writers wonder who they really are as a creative. In this video, I share a helpful practice for finding that voice.

This is a practice that you can use to really see what is special and unique about you so that you can hone your voice as a writer.

There are three stages to this practice.

The first part is called, "where." This is connecting to where your voice is. Close your eyes and just try to locate it. Now, your mind might simply go blank. That's okay. That's the practice. In this first phase, you’ll encounter some unknowns.

The next question is "how." How does your creative desire express itself? No matter where your author’s voice is coming from, how does that voice want to come out? For example, maybe you'll feel that your voice wants to express itself through a screenplay, or a novel.

The third stage in finding the writer’s voice is the "why." Without the “why,” that natural burst of inspiration is going to fade away. A “why” will give you a sense of active hope. Let's say you're writing a short story. When you feel that you need to take a rest, just focus on why you’re writing it.

You can also use this to find an agent. Simply search online, and when you find one, ask yourself if they’re right for you. Do this for 30 days, and you’ll have a good idea of who you want.

The writer’s voice should not be a mystery. By doing some introspection, you can bring forth your author’s voice and let it guide you in your daily writing.
