An Exercise to Help You Find Your Voice

Try this writing exercise from Simon Van Booy if you feel you need help finding your voice, whether you are writing nonfiction or fiction.

even though any writing is excellent practice. To save you the same heartache, heres an exercise to help you find your voice:

so if you read short stories mostly, thats the genre that might be most natural for you.

just remake it in what your opinion is better, clearer, deeper.

ve been through a few drafts of editing and rewriting each page, print out twenty clean copies of your edited pages and compare them to the original twenty first pages in the books. All the original pages will be very different, but in all of your pages there will be similarities and a pattern will emerge. Thats your voice.
