One of the biggest excuses I hear from people who say they want to write is that they’re afraid their words aren’t unique enough, brilliant enough, or interesting enough for anyone to read. Their fear of failure keeps them from getting started. Then they spend their lives mourning the loss of a dream.
Each new page is a fresh opportunity to get it right. If your words don’t make your heart sing with joy, write better words on the next page. You’ll end up throwing away most of those pages, but you’ll learn something with each one that rolls across your screen.
Don’t let your fears keep you from becoming the writer you’re meant to be. In this digital world, you’re not even wasting paper and ink when you write and rewrite a dozen times. Be bold! Throw those words against the white page and see what sticks. The more you try, the more you’ll get right.
Next time, maybe you’ll select an even bigger canvas on which your imagination can spill your story.
