You Have a Unique Perspective That’s Worth Sharing
It’s in there, your voice. Your voice is your unique take on the world at large. It’s your very own special twist on things. It’s how you make your writing shine. It’s what will draw the reader’s to you, and keep them coming back for more. It’s something that only you have, and that’s pretty awesome.
You might be way ahead of me in this department, and if you are then my hats off to you. I’ve been writing for years, but I’m still struggling to find my voice. It’s because I haven’t invested the time and effort into my writing that I should.
I know you know what I’m talking about when I say voice. There are several parts of your character or personality that should be consistent in your writing style. If you’re not beginning to see some common traits of yours that shine through in your writing, then chances are you’re not writing enough.
When you find that unique voice, you might not even be able to explain how it came about – let alone describe what it is. That’s the beauty of writing and discovering as you write. Sometimes the best things just happen naturally.
Making the Commitment
Some of us just struggle to carve out the time to devote to our writing. It’s okay, I totally get it, I’m guilty of it too. I should be writing every day, learning more about what kind of writer I’m becoming, because even after a few years at this I don’t feel like I’m quite there yet.
Make a promise to yourself, to work on your writing. I’ll make that promise to myself as well. I will get up an hour earlier every day to focus at least 45 minutes on my writing. Can you do the same, carve out some time every single day to see where your writing can take you? You’re worth it.

Now go kick some ass, it’s Monday 😉
“If you struggle with getting people to read your writing or with staying consistent in your craft, you need to stop chasing numbers and productivity and reboot. It’s time to start finding and developing that voice of yours.” – Jeff Goins
