2. Write—Your writing voice is like a muscle. You must exercise this muscle to fine tune and develop the gift that lies within. Write what you see and think and know. Hone your observation skills.
3. Listen—When people speak, tune your ear to the subtlety of what they’re really saying. Find what’s authentic and transfer that authenticity to your words.
4. Discover—What is your passion? What do you love? What draws you? More than just writing what you know—write about what makes you want to get out of bed every morning.
5. Embrace—Find other authors who “get” you and the stories your heart longs to tell. Sometimes it requires a friend/outsider to help you to identify your true voice. Most of us, consciously or not, find ourselves writing book after book that reflect a central life theme/truism for us as individuals. Probably arising out of the broken home of my childhood, the stories my heart wants to tell revolve around creating family, restoration and hope.
6. Release—Let go of the fear that holds you back from expressing your truest self. Learn to trust your voice. Authority, power and confidence come with the repeated practice of expression. Continue to grow your voice with new experiences; beware of complacence and stagnation.
