Will The Real You Please Stand Up

Are you trying to find your voice, your signature style that makes you stand out from the rest. We are encouraged to play it safe, draw within the lines and not rustle any feathers, but is this the best approach.

Mothership: Episode 3

When we start writing stories it’s vital to learn from established authors.
We need to learn the mechanics of telling an engaging story from the first page to the last. The more we read and study their books the more acquainted we’ll be to their voice. This is natural. But if we are not careful we could become a clone of the author.

A clone is similar in form but lacking in substance.
We need to discover and develop are own je ne sais quoi.
