How To Find Your Voice

With all the edits Brownie Fix has been through, it’s come back, full circle to the book I want, but now it’s better. I connected two of my threads that I dropped and added an element that I knew was there but just did not see it. Losing my voice was so easy with all the editing, and then I began to doubt myself as the book went slowly away from my original vision. It’s back to me now, and I really like it. I had to dig deep and find my main character’s voice again.

So what do you do when you lose your character’s voice? Dig deep and look at the original vision and stick to it, making sure that all the threads are in place. In other words, keep writing, and the voice will come out again full force. If you’re got something good, listen to your gut and believe it.
