I'm preparing to write a book myself (albeit non-fiction). One quote that stuck with me was in the first episode of The Silkworm, Tim McInnerny's character Daniel Chard said: "And I've been in books all my life. A writer's voice is particular."
Can my voice be particular or original if I like certain writers and their styles? I don’t want to feel an imitator or a fraud. You can unconsciously absorb certain techniques or turns of phrase.
Thanks for any guidance.
