Write in Your Own Voice

Authenticity is important. I believe you should learn the mechanics of writing, soak up the knowledge, practice the method, and then make it your own.

When you are learning how to paint, they teach you realism, abstract, and cubism. However, your masterpiece will never be recognized if it is a copy of someone else’s work.

It is hard.  It is confusing.  It is scary, but it will be genuine if you write in your own voice.

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” — Marilyn Monroe

In my latest novel, The Light of Supremazia, about a girl who can see spirits and attends a school run by deceased celebrities, Marilyn Monroe is one of the teachers.  I chose her because she has flair and a knack for drama, but also because she was not afraid to be herself.
