Finding your voice

Advice, October 4th, 2017

I still haven’t found my voice. It’d probably be best to call the search off at this point, even. For most of the search my perceived lack of voice hasn’t really inspired me to write. I’ve come to the realization that it’s done the opposite, even. And I end up using it as a justification to put off working with a potentially good idea because “I should really wait until I’ve developed my voice for this one.” And of course, I haven’t, and perhaps won’t, but I don’t think that’s the point.

Of course, by now you probably know the lengths I go to to find relationships between disparate ideas, arguments, and plots. It’s almost pathological, really. And since we use the term voice, I’m immediately reminded of language acquisition (shocker!). And of course, precisely here is where I run the risk of losing everyone except myself, but that’s okay!...
