Are you committed to your readers?

In her Introduction to “Committed: A Love Story,” Elizabeth Gilbert’s followup to Eat, Pray, Love, she mentions something of interest on page 13. She wrote Eat, Pray, Love not for millions of readers but for “precisely 27 readers; her small circle of female friends.” 

So when you think of “voice,” think small and stay true, as if you’re writing for your best friend.

Keep this in mind, especially if you’re writing a memoir.
