Hiding your personality

When many of us start writing, we hide our personality. As a result, our writing becomes weak. Here’s why:

  • We care too much about what other people might think. We’re trying to impress. Especially when we’re writing for specific readers, like potential employers or publishers.
  • We compare ourselves with writers we admire. We try to emulate others too much.
  • We lack confidence in our writing. So we try to hide behind fancy words and jargon.
  • We’re used to writing under industry formats, like academic or legal writing, that after some time we forget our personal voice.
