One of my favorite line from The Dead Poet's Society belongs to Robin Williams' character Mr. Keating. "You must strive to find your voice. Because the longer you take to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all."
One thing about writing that I don't know if I'll ever quite get the hang of is Voice. I've never been able to codify what makes good voice, or what mine is, except that when I've read books, I can tell it when it's there. Voice, in my opinion, the most elusive concept in the world, and all I can imagine is I'll know mine when I've found it. And I'm pretty sure I haven't found it yet.
But I'm not done looking for it. I'm still writing, still working, still trying. Because I don't want to give it up only to try again years later and find that I don't even know where to begin looking for it anymore. I have every intention of looking until I can find it.
I'm sure it's around here somewhere. :D
How about you? Have you found your voice yet?
