I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for shifting/expanding your writer's "voice"? I've got a style, a voice that I'm fairly happy with, I think of it as my "Sofia Coppola" voice, that sort of soft-focus, slightly detached from the action feeling that pervades "Lost in Translation" and "The Virgin Suicides" movies. This is good, however, I've got a story in my mind that needs a hell of a lot more immediacy, it's a bit of an action SF/Horror, but every time I start writing it, I find I'm in that same semi-detached world, which is not where I need to be. I certainly don't exclusively read books that are in any one style, so it's not a lack of exposure to other views and styles. Any suggestions on how to push my boundaries in a different direction?
