How did you find your voice? Did someone believe in you and encourage you? Was it a friend? Your mom? A teacher? A grandparent? Or perhaps a child? Did singing, dancing, writing, or any other art play a role in the evolution of your voice? First reflect, and then write for ten or more minutes. These questions can guide your writing:
After you write, decide if you want to leave this work private or if you would like to share it. Could you read it or email it to someone who would enjoy discovering this story? Could you include it in bigger piece of writing or a blog? Or should you hold onto the piece until is does grow into a story you know how to share?
