Let's Get Real

If you’re a writer, it’s impossible to banish doubt completely. I’m guessing you may have wondered:

  • Is this any good?
  • Am I any good?
  • Am I ever going to actually finish my book?
  • If I do finish my book, will anybody buy it? Read it?
  • Am I wasting my time? Wasting my money?

But while you can’t banish doubt, there are ways to manage it:

  • Hang out with other writers so you feel less alone.
  • Hire a book coach to provide regular feedback, which will give you perspective. PS: book coaches are also great at holding your hand when doubt creeps in
  • And most of all, reconnect with your WHY. Why are you writing this particular piece? Why does it matter to you? Why might it matter to others? 

Doubt will always be lurking, but it doesn’t have to get the upper hand.

Writing can feel like a slog. You would rather do practically anything else (dentist appointment, anyone?) than put your butt in the chair. But then there are those magical times when you can’t wait to get back to the page. When you can’t stop thinking about your book. When you close your laptop at the end of the day, feeling deeply satisfied.

Those days may not come often, but when they do, enjoy them, luxuriate in them.

You are in flow. You are in alignment with your purpose. You are doing the thing.

Go you, go!

When’s the last time you were on fire like that?
