It's my characters' voices each time, not mine.
As a new writer you would struggle, but so far I am happy with what I have. No, I don't know it completely. I will see what will come next and how I will handle it. It was easier for me to write my both books in the first person, though.
Some authors have a distinctive style, and others create very different books from story to story. I think I am the latter.
At the moment I'm discovering my voice. Through writing, writing and more writing I hope I shall find it. Then I'll see whether it changes as I do. I suspect so.
I think "my voice" is ever evolving & it keeps changing depending how my life changes & evolves.
I don't know how to answer that. You either have a voice or you don't. I sat through a lot of college art classes and only about 1% of the students had what you would call a "style" of their own, and I never took a class that taught you how to find one. It's the same with writing.
I believe that I have found my genre or niche with thrillers, but developing one's voice is a lifelong process. All writers have to start somewhere. Just like anything else, practice makes perfect. Writing is no different. I have been told (and like to believe) that each successive novel that I write is better than the last.
Yes I write what's in my heart
there are several answers to that question. 1. I have established a "voice" that is confortable and 2. I am always looking to improve-especially if I am not being clear in my description.
Yes, I think I have found my voice, and I have found it useful when writing my blogs. However, I try not to let it get in the way of a client's established voice or establishing a voice unique to them. That's most critical when I am editing something a client has written or when I am writing something to appear in their name.
I believe I am definitely closer to being true to my writing self and am consistently developing my style and by association "my voice".
This takes years and years of patience, trial and error, frustration and persistence to refine and it is probably a lifelong journey.
The more we write, the more we grow. Not forgetting that the aging process, social and personal circumstances influence the way and what we write about.
The writer's voice I think is at its core fundamentally the same as you want to write about what is meaningful /interesting to you, which in turn will interest your readers.
Still searching...afraid if I find it, I'll find myself boxed in.
I think right now I have found "my voice". Yet, I also believe you spend your life searching for it because "your voice" can change. Sometimes you might feel comfortable expression yourself in writing, but then the day arrives where you want to try public speaking. People change and I think "their voices" change as well.
I am a writer of many voices. If there is a perfect voice out there, somewhere … I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
I think I have found my voice, when more readers tell me that my stories have given them pleasure.
