Tuesday's Tinted Ink

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Sorry I missed yesterday's Mixed Ink. I had to take my daughter to the Dr.

Today, I'd like to discuss more on finding your writer's voice.

When writing, make sure you go deep into your character's voice, and be careful not to let you, as the author, shine through.

Use emotion and don't be afraid to let your thoughts shine through. Remember, your voice is unique and original already just because YOU ARE YOU. No one else int he world thinks like you or sees things the same as you. Use this to your advantage!

Be brave. If you feel vulnerable and fearful of your voice, then GOOD! You are moving in the right direction. Why? Because this is your strength. You've got something no other writer has. And once you conquer that fear, know your voice is peaking out from behind all that vulnerability.

That's it for today. Is your voice hiding behind the real you? What are you doing to put that fear to rest?


  1. Voice is difficult to nail down, especially when you first begin writing.

  2. It took me a decade to figure out the right voice for my stories. I copied other people's and learned from them and from reading and then finally figured mine out. Great post, Ink, and congrats on getting into The Writers Voice. I'm rooting for you! :-)

  3. Finding a different voice for each character is the hardest part for me. Sometimes it just HAPPENS, and others... yeah. I loved this post :)

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.
