The Writers Circle: Finding Your Voice

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Each of us has a unique style in our writing, a personal method of telling our story. Often, we may find that readers as, “why don’t you write more like…” (insert a famous author’s name here) or “you write to similarly to…” (insert author’s name).  With the real or implied pressure to write like others but not too much like them, how have you been able to make your writing familiar enough that people can draw comparisons, but unique enough to be completely you?
