Your writing voice

what lies behind you

Note:  For those of you who are wondering about my choices for blogging topic, I am participating in NaBloPoMo, which means I will try to post every day of November. The prompts are provided to help inspire.

The Prompt:  Do you feel you have found your voice on your blog? What techniques have you tried to develop your voice in your writing? What are some characteristics of your personality in your writing?

I do feel like I have found my voice on my blog.  My goal when I began this blogging adventure was to learn to be a better writer, by practicing; to encourage and inspire others and to share wisdom gleaned from years of being a wife and mother.

I don’t know that I have tried to employ any particular technique other than being myself, being transparent and honest and not being afraid to say what is on my mind, even though others may disagree.  This blog has actually helped with the latter, because I detest confrontation.  In the past, I would often be silent for fear of repercussion.  I have come to realize that my voice isn’t everyone’s voice, but it’s mine and I have a right to speak it.

Interestingly, to me anyway, is that the often hidden aspects of my personality, being the introvert that I am, often surface in my blog posts.  My sense of humor, for instance, shows up in my writing when it might not be as obvious in person.  I wax poetic here, and I tend to only do that in writing.  The biggest part of my everyday personality that shows in my blog is my positive attitude.  I am definitely looking for the good and searching for things to be thankful for daily.  My devotion and dedication to God, my family and friends should be obvious in my posts as well.

I am grateful for those who have read, commented, sent emails and texts encouraging me to continue.  They motivate me to become a better writer and to keep walking on this journey towards being a published author one day.
