“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
~ Bruce Lee
What this quote means to entrepreneurial authors:
One way writers learn is to copy or emulate the work of other writers who have gone before them. This is a very good strategy while you are learning the rhythm of language and how to craft plots and weave tales. But at some point, you must remove this training wheel and find your own voice.
All writers have a voice that is uniquely their own. You can hear it in the rhythm of their words, their choice of words, their choice of topic and more. But this voice is silenced when the author of those words does not trust her muse and attempts to be like someone else.
You were given your voice because your voice is important, and it is more than OK that it is not exactly like Ray Bradbury or Issac Asimov or Carl Sagan or whomever your favorite writers are.
Have faith in your voice, in your words, in your message … in yourself. Boldly stand in your power and own the special awesome that is you.
