It goes a little like this.
You’re excited about your ideas and writing, you get half-way through your work and then you stop and wonder…
Will people really care about what I’ve got to say? How will this pay my bills anyway? What if I’m wasting my time?
As you think about it, your lack of self-belief paralyses you.
So, you stop writing. You decide against publishing, against telling people about your writing, against submitting your work and even finishing your book.
I get it.
Two years ago, I committed to publishing one blog post a week and to sending that blog post to subscribers of my insider list.
I try to do this every Thursday. And yet when Thursday morning comes around, I inevitably think of a reason not to press publish, not to press send.
You’re wasting your time Bryan. Nobody will read this. Your ideas are half-baked, and you’ve told all the wrong stories.
It doesn’t help that writing often means getting comfortable with failure.
