What can you do to find your voice?If you’re looking for great insights on the process of writing, some balanced opinions of the virtues of traditional and self-publishing, and lots of vulgar language, you should check out Chuck Wendig’s blog over at Terrible Minds. Wendig has written a number of excellent books that include novels, game books, and advice tomes that can improve your writing. This Wednesday’s writing tip comes straight from the keyboard of Mr. Wendig:

An author doesn’t find her voice. An author’s voice is what’s on the page when she writes without trying or pretension. You are your voice. Trying to find it is often an act of digging a deep hole to discover what was standing next to you all along.

– Chuck Wendig
