Writing Resources - X - XX Ways to Find Your Voice


It was a difficult scramble to fit a resource in for the letter X so I used X as a number instead of a letter. Writers hear about and talk about voice all the time. For new writers, the question is often, what is my voice? Or how do I find it. So take some encouraging wisdom from this link on How to Find Your Writer's Voice.

Only two days left in the Challenge but you can always refer back to all the resources shared on this site.

Did you ever have trouble finding your writing voice?

I think it's very smart using X as a number, a very tricky letter :) I still struggle a bit with voice, I think I need to write more in order to feel comfortable with it and that it represents me as a writer.

Very clever! I like what you chose to do with X. As to my voice? I'm not sure I've found the one I want yet. Or maybe I've found it and need to fine tune it.

Remember when the 2nd ever "Star Wars" movie (The Empire Strikes Back) came out, and all of a sudden it was "Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back" and the first movie became "Star Wars IV: A New Hope"? My boys (who were quite young then) referred to the movies as Star Wars "eye vee" and Star Wars "vee" ... even after we explained "Roman numerals" to them. :p

I've always wondered about voice.
What is voice? Is the voice of a hybrid writer consistent across the different genres? Probably...especially if the writer has a strong and unique voice.

In the beginning of my career, finding and hearing my writing voice was tough. It's gotten easier. Now it's about finding my character's voice and leaving mine at home. Thanks for a great example of X, Susan.

Using X as a number is valid in my book, even if it is Latin.

Have been very grateful for all the links.

X is always hard. We forgive your little cheat, ;) especially because this is so useful for struggling, new writers.
