My inner voice…
My Amazon author page!!!!

It is not what you say but how you say it.

When I was in college I took a lot of creative writing classes. I wanted to be a writer.  Initially a poet but then eventually short stories and novels.  Writing is a journey to find your voice and  the journey you take to get there. Some journey’s take you through dark places, not that the writer is a bad person but that inside their voice is dark.

I’ve been on that quest since college. My voice has come at times (there are some really nice blogs in the past seven years posted here) but at other times I have struggled with my voice.

It is similar to the inner monologue great actors portray on stage, the argument between what is seen and what is unseen. The balance of power within the human mind resulting in both a wonder and a joy. There are times when I hear my voice that I feel like writing like writing anything and everything. There are times when it slips away that I feel like a piece of me is missing.

That inner monologue that drives me, has become a part of me.

Yet still I quest for that inner voice to be with me all the time, not to slip away at times. When it slips away I wonder if it will ever return to me, to comfort me and guide me as I write.
