Have you ever hesitated telling someone you are a writer?
This has long fascinated me - the fears I've had; the fears clients have discussed. Do you resonate with any of these?
What if someone asks what I've published, and I haven't been yet?
What if they want to read my manuscript and I'm just not comfortable with sharing it?
What if I love my writing, as a blogger, and someone expects me to tell them I'm a novelist?
The list is long, and the writer's who add to it - filled with emotion. The important thing to remember is there are fears every Creative must face... fears about money, recognition, being misunderstood, losing their identity, finding their persona, fears of doing it wrong and even fears of doing it right!
These fears... you WILL learn to manage them, and the more quickly you are willing to embrace your INTENTION to be a writer, the more willing you will be to establish that fact with others. ... See MoreSee Less
I'm working on a book about developing an unstoppable author mindset; one of the points that held me captive in my writing was the need to address whether you look in the wrong place for validation. At the end of the day, only YOU can get yourself over the struggles you face as a writer, and in the process, and only YOU can ensure the end product is of the highest possible quality - whether that is about the words you write, or the team you engage to brilliantly polish them.
In this need for validation, some of you worry about what is going to come out at the end of your pen when you sit down to let the muses flow. Granted, it just might go in the wrong direction and leave you with a diminished level of confidence - not to mention that niggling question running rampantly through your mind, "Why do I even try at all?"
I have two questions for you about that.
1. What would it be like to not write at all?
I cannot imagine my life without it!
2. What IF... you are amazing? You never know... the words might just flow, and they could be inspiring, unique and ultimately - impactful to the lives of the readers you want to touch.
Which is why I encourage writers to try, and try again, and again, and again. You try because of the possibilities! ... See MoreSee Less
