Encouragement Pages-11/22/2019-The Wisdom Of James Arthur Baldwin (3)

Every writer has their own niche, a lens by and through which they see and process the world.

This is can be a non-fiction lens, fiction, satire, prose or poetry.

Your lens is your lens!

Don’t get caught up in trying to mimic someone else’s take, or voice. Develop your own. This is what makes your voice–your lens–powerful. This is what will make your work distinct!

Don’t–Never fear your lens. Only adjust it.

As any good teacher will tell you: Eyes on your own paper, do your own work.

Get to it!

With Love & Ink,

JBHarris
