Great advice from Lela Winston!
Lot’s of beginning writers and content producers often struggle to find the voice that is right for them. Developing a voice in writing can mean the difference between choppy incomprehensible prose and content that transcends. Writers find that voice in many different ways, often through trial and error.
One way that will help you “find your voice,” is through poetry. Even if you aren’t very good at it, still write a poem or a haiku from time to time. Make it a dedication to someone or something (even if you do not share it) so that you can understand yourself through more florid language. Nothing brings out the “corny” faster than someone trying to write a love poem to their beloved. Amateur romantic poetry is great, because it is a clear indication of the writers’ level of facility with figurative language. It can also be hilarious source of entertainment!
