A writing tip: Finding my writing voice

When I give talks about writing, I’m often asked about “writing voice” and, specifically how to find it so I recently wrote a guest post on this topic for Frost Magazine.

If you’re a reader, I hope you enjoy this glimpse into why and how writers write what they do.

And if you’re a writer who follows my blog? Voice is an aspect of writing craft many of us (me included) have struggled with so I hope you find my perspective helpful.

“Although finding my voice was one of the most difficult parts of my writing journey, it was also the most rewarding. And, perhaps most importantly, writing with the warmth and intuition that comes from the core of who I am is the most honest gift I can give.”

Read the article (including a picture of me with dear author friend Susanna Bavin) here.

And not least, a cookie (biscuit for British friends)

For me, happiness is a sweet autumn treat with a book and cup of tea.

    I’m looking forward to reading ‘A Wish in Irish Falls’, Jen. I think finding your voice as a writer is very hard and in your article in Frost Magazine, you sum it up perfectly. The pumpkin spice cookie looks scrummy!
