Ever worry that your "style" is merely an imitation of your current favorite writer? Well, don't despair. Reading work that you like then writing work that is similar is a part of the writer's growth process. Just keep at it, and eventually your work will begin to sound more like your own and less like something you just read. Today, be open to the process. Allow yourself to imitate, then allow yourself to move through it. Every step will bring you closer to telling the story only you can tell.
