Who Are You? Learn More About Your Personal Stories and Writer’s VoiceFeb 09, 2022
All right everyone, I’m going to talk about how you can find your voice and share your personal story with your audience.
My question is, who are you? And why are you writing your story? Why do people need to listen and read about your story?
Simple but tough questions…
If you can answer all those questions by yourself, then that will be super awesome! But let’s talk a little bit more deeply.
One person said to me that “You’re the one who’s responsible for everything that has happened to you. So tell your story because your story is unique. Your audience, readers don't really care about you. They care about what you can give them.
For example, if you saw that they picked up the book about stopping eating sugar, then they probably wanted to know some steps on how to do it. In that way, you already know what you can give them, but do you also have what it takes to get them to listen to you? That’s where you put your personal touch to make the book more interesting.
Maya Angela said, “People always forget what you said, but not the way you make them feel”. They might forget all those steps on how to stop eating sugar, but they will never forget the relationship you made with them through your book.
This is one of the most important things in writing your book. You need to know what makes your book unique and stand out from the rest. Because at the end of the day, there will still be a lot of people who write a book that has the same message as you, the only thing that’s going to be different is because it’s your own story. Writing your own story will help you differentiate yourself from other books out there that have the same topic or niche.
You don’t have to confess and write the whole thing about yourself. It’s not about confessing something, it’s about authenticity. Know how to create these boundaries so that your audience will feel the same. There’s no shame in that.
