Finding Your Voice

I don't think it is possible to give tips for finding one's voice; it's one of those things for which there aren't really any tricks or shortcuts, or even any advice that necessarily translates from writer to writer. All I can tell you is to write as much as possible.
--Poppy Z. Brite

I was talking with my coworker this week about finding your voice. She has been in several writer's groups, and mentioned that one of the writers told her that it took her years to find her voice. My coworker says she doesn't think she has found her voice, and she has also been writing for years.

Is it weird to think I've found my voice? I have a lot to learn as a writer, but finding my voice isn't one of those things.

On the other hand, I could use some help with detail . . .
