By now, you know that the world is full of beautiful, talented and talented people, but for a lot of people, it’s a lonely and frustrating existence.
We’re lucky, however, to live in a world where people are still willing to talk about what makes them tick, and it’s time we all started to be more open about our inner workings.
Here’s our top five tips to help you find your voice, whether you want to write or not.1.
Know your audience.
“It’s really hard to find a niche that you’re comfortable in,” says Chris Cope, a musician and writer based in New York.
“The internet is an incredibly powerful tool, but it’s also an incredibly limited resource, and there’s so much that can go wrong.
People have been looking for something different and they’ve found it.
That’s really how we found our niche.”2.
Find the right words.
“You need to know the right thing to say to be successful,” says the musician and songwriter.
“People will respond to something they’re hearing, even if they don’t know it.”
The word “art” has a special connotation, he says.
“That word is a lot easier to get your head around than other words.
I can’t really explain why, but when I used that word, I found myself in a good place to start.”3.
Make it fun.
“Artists aren’t afraid to take risks.
If you want people to be inspired by your work, you have to make it fun,” says musician, songwriter and director John C. Dvorak.
“Make it interesting and engaging, not just something that makes you money, which I do not think is necessarily the best way to be perceived.”4.
Find a mentor.
“Being an artist is a very lonely thing,” says actor/musician Dave Franco.
“There’s a certain amount of loneliness in the work and the fact that you have this great group of people helping you out and telling you what you should be doing, it is isolating.”5.
Listen to your instincts.
“If you listen to your gut, then you will know what to do, and you will make the right decisions,” says Cope.
“Listen to your instinct.”
“If someone has a very specific idea that’s in their head, they can be very creative, but if you listen and think, ‘I want to do this, this, and this,’ you might not be able to find it.”
