Some times I feel I am still looking. It takes time. It ain't easy. If someone makes it look easy, it will inspire you.
I truly believe I have found my voice. However, it could always use refining.
I've already found it couple of years ago.
I believe for now I have found my voice. I am still learning, and I know I am still growing in my writing skills, and eventually I will find a stronger voice.
As I said, I think "voice" is a matter of the individual story. I think I'm finding my voice every time.
The notion that a writer has a "voice" or a personal style s/he must unlock is idiotic and bizarre. Conversely, I work to avoid the shackles of a personal style. Nothing will kill your writing faster than developing a personal style that you attempt to apply, indiscriminately, across disparate projects that demands distinct approaches.
I invent voices for individual poems. I don't even think about "my" voice - but Kipling has it right: there are nine and sixty ways of making tribal lays and every one of them is right.
I have found my voice.
In the sense that I don't copy anybody else's style, no matter how much better it might be than mine, I like to think so - but in a broader sense it's something that I think every writer needs to go on searching for.
Language evolves, society changes, ideas develop, and what's regarded as amusing one year can be considered totally offensive by the next.
As if the task of constantly improving one's own writing wasn't challenging enough, those factors mean that it's unwise for a writer to decide that having found their voice means that their style and language should be set in stone.
Even Shakespeare constantly sought new ways of self-expression, switching between tragedy and comedy, prose and poetry, and even making up new words and phrases as the need required, and if developing his "voice" is good enough for him, it's certainly good enough for all the rest of us!
There is no single 'Voice' in my line of work - I have to use the relevant tone according to the piece, audience and publication.
I wasn't going to answer this - I think I have an idea what people expect "your voice" to be, but I have no idea what mine is.
I write, therefore I am. How it comes to me, what inspiration I have, the format I take, the style, I'm fluid enough to adapt to what I think the story needs. I don't worry about nailing my colours to the wall and proclaiming "this is me".
I do believe I have found my voice.
If your voice is not evolving, then you are not maturing. I would be embarrassed if I wrote like someone ten or twenty years younger than I am.
I think the idea of voice is synonymous with the idea of your Being and most likely we're all searching for that. The 'voice' of the writer is continually evolving, even if you're not consciously seeking it.
I believe I have found what it is I ultimately want to say with most of my stories but I think that's only half of the battle.
My 'voice' will keep evolving. I know the next book will be significantly different in this regard.
