P. Elbow on Creating a Writing Voice

The following is a quotation from an article about freewriting that I read about. I really thought it was powerful and meaningful.

"Maybe you don't like your voice; maybe people have made fun of it. But it's the only voice you've got. It's your only source of power. You better get back into it, no matter what you think of it. If you keep writing in it, it may change into something you like better. But if you abandon it, you'll likely never have a voice and never be heard."
