Writing is something I've always loved to do, but was severely sidelined once I had to deal with the rigors of grad school. I've been trying to get into again but I'm struggling with regaining my writer's voice. Before grad school, I'd say my writing voice was very influenced by the likes of Terry Pratchett, JK Rowling and Neil Gaiman. But now, if I try to write something it seems scattered in terms of style and tone. Sometimes it's whimsical, sometimes flowery, and sometimes it's more unembellished. So I thought I'd maybe reach out to the more experienced . Any ideas on how I can regain and improve on my writer's voice? Which authors would you say most influenced yours? Is it something that comes naturally to you or do you have to work on it? Is it constant or do you change it based on what you're working on?
