Well, I'm back from a wonderful fourth of July holiday with family and friends; it couldn't have been better.
Today I came across a wonderful bit of advice I just had to share from the book "Finding Your Writer's Voice," written by Thaisa Frank and Dorothy Wall, which is an amazing book if you are trying to find voice.
"This is very important to remember. You can learn the concepts of craft by taking classes and reading books. But you won't know how to work with them and they won't have concrete meaning unless you discover them in the outpourings of your own voice."
This is so true. I have read many books, have attended several classes and conferences, but nothing really clicked until I caught the vision of voice. It was always this mystical thing until one day there was an ahha moment and suddenly my writing was different.
