“Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are.
The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents
of your mind, your heart, your soul.”

Meg Rosoff

About nikkimmascali

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.

    I like this. It takes the pressure off a little. I’m so timid about my own writing…showing it to others. I fear it will sound superficial or silly or just plain amateur. But this really helps, thanks!

    • Thanks for the comment, Jeanne. I still get a little gun-shy when I write here or for my day job, which is an online publication. It’s hard to put yourself out there, but in the end, it’s the best thing for you! 😉

I'd love to know what you thought about this post!
