Just writing may not be so hard, but writing with your voice is harder.
Leo Babauta of Zen Habits had a good list:
- Write a lot.
- Experiment boldly.
- Learn to hear yourself.
- Getting that voice from your head to the virtual paper.
- Find what feels true.
- Find clarity.
- Remove the noise.
- Use your voice.
He lists the reasons why he uses his voice. Some of them are:
I write of simplicity in a world that’s needlessly complicated.
I write of minimalism to stem the tide of consumerism.
I write of contentment because too many feel a lacking.
