So I haven’t had a voice for the last 24 hours or so due to a cold that has ruined my chances of succeeding at my next audition. That said, being without a voice was really terrifying. I felt absolutely powerless and even more claustrophobic than usual.
It made me realise how scary it must be to lose part of yourself – especially as I am my voice; I am a musician, a debater, the ‘loud one’. Be it your voice, your sight, your leg, your virginity, your sanity, it must always be terrifying.
So the challenge is to write about losing a bit of yourself, and that bit could be anything! But it has to be losing and not, for example, being born blind. Other than that you have free reign and I look forward to reading any entries!
