Analysis for Voice: Overview 

Although there is no true order for this creative editing / self workshop checklist, we will proceed with a one to ten explanation. 
1: What was your inspiration? 

5: Have you done any Creative Workshopping? 

10: Have you imposed Adaptive Book Craft criteria? 
Keep in mind that X: 1-5-10 may be “started” at 1,5, or 10, depending on the development of the project or draft of the text. 

The purpose of the JWC-XYZ format is to help in interfacing / developing one’s literary voice, and that all of these factors from point 1-5-10 have an importance, but some may pertain to a deficiency in what you are writing. 

Going down the list and transposing all the factors involved will aid in pointing out what it is you think is off. 

Each factor was boiled down from FAQ and or observations during self workshopping and even creative workshopping within a writer’s circle such as Joe’s Writers’ Club. 

The following is a point by point for definitions as well as functionality.

1: What was your inspiration? 

How does one attain inspiration? A wise old creative writer once said that you have to read well to write well, and as obvious as this sounds it is not a default setting for young writers. 

Another angle is to write what you like to read. 

Obsess over what you wish to create, obsess over what you love to read, and what you find from such obsession will fuel your creativity.

A creative obsession is how one attains a “literary voice,” otherwise known as a style or characteristic distinctive to their own writing. 

1A: Write what you like to read 

Talent assessment: journal, poetry, novel, drama? 

If you wish to inform, take up Journalism. If you wish to transform, take up Poetics. If you wish to express, be a Novelist. If you wish to impress, be a dramatist. 
If you need to write about a flower field, then go find one and write what your poetic senses tell you. Sketch the flowers, the dew, sunlight, the flight path of bees, and any beasts you see meandering amid the outreaching nature at play. Study the way architecture sits, on what hill, composed of what, in what state of completion or ruination, so that those who read have a basis to plug into. It is in the writer’s seeking that they come to discover the way in which their talent flows. How else will you learn to obsess? 

Explore ceaselessly… Learn to be creatively obsessive. Learning to paint? View color. Learning to write? View drama. Baptize yourself in what’s cool, what’s wicked, what’s awesome, so that what you dig becomes second nature. Pursue fascination and seek awe in everything you dig. (Dig = your understanding) Rising from what you dig is a muse of a lifetime, and this data should be assessed, its potentiality in a creative agent is to be outlined so that one’s personal ability may be known. Find awe in words. Study authors, and then obsess on who said authors read. Pursue the lineage and descendancy of all language until the symmetry of myth is opened to you. 

1B: Read Well, Write Well 

How many books read / loved? How many books read / hated? How many books read / blah? How many books read / obsessed? Add them up, so that you have some idea of how much further you have to go. Our / your goal is to double that number! 
So read double as many, and know there is no way to fail… 

If you think you know enough, know that you could never know enough. If you think that you need to learn, know that you can never learn / know anything. If you believe that dreams come true, know that dreams are timeless goals. Temporal goals are for today, timeless goals are the dreams we seek for always. Only to the lover of a dream, does the dream unfold. 

The great Joseph Campbell said, “Follow your bliss.” 

Baptize yourself in temporal goals based in daily attainable satisfaction  
Dream seemingly impossible dreams… and never give up 

Take the 1B: challenge yourself over the next year or two… See if your muse doesn’t brighten!
