I think our voice changes and we change. I go back and read some of the stories and poetry that I have written and although I love them, I am a better writer these days because I write what I want to say rather than looking for words to say things, the words seem to flow a little better.
At my age, I HAVE to have found my voice.
I think I have, I write in a conversational tone, and this is the type of reading I prefer, as well.
I believe I have found my voice, but I also believe that we can change our voice depending on what we're writing about and what happens to us in our lives. I think a good writer has many voices. And I may have a voice at the age of sixty that I could not possibly have at the age of thirty. So, while I wouldn't describe it as "searching," I think our voice can grow and change.
That's not a problem for me. And a writer can have more than one "voice".
I've always had my voice, but it's continually evolving into something with a higher purpose.
I am still searching for that one particular voice I can call my own in my writing. I imagine I will always be search because each story is different and must require its own voice to tell it.
Yes and that voice is ever-changing.
I would love to write a best selling novel, or academy award winning screenplay. But for now I'll have to stick to cranking out my sci fi books.
My "voice" varies from novel to novel and I'm always searching for it whenever I start a new story.
I found my voice writing news 35 years ago.
I found my voice in my girlhood through my art and writing. I wrote my first "book" when I was 10, titled, "The Mystery House". I even created the book cover with my art work. (I still have it!) It's quite humorous to read it--a little corny with no real plot, but I remember feeling very proud of myself for writing it.
They say we all have out thing. King has his horror, Shakespeare has his plays, well I write what I feel. I have written a few comedies, a few thrillers, and a few short story and poetry books. My voice is to do the best I can. If a writer sticks to one theme, he is not that versitile now is he? my voice in comedy comes natural for me but writing poetry and thrillers is easier, comedy is very hard. Besides the stand up, I spent three years on a local show in Jersey doing comedy.
I believe I have found it, though it sometimes morph's a little depending on the character in my first person writings.
I think I've found my voice, though it wasn't easy to realize that. It took me time to become confident in that voice and to be able to tap into it without so much heart burning.
