Writing a book is hard, right..?
The writing itself is one thing but keeping a positive mindset, believing in yourself, and your work, can actually be the biggest struggle writers face.
Believe me, I get it!
So many authors suffer from:
Thinking no one will care about their book
A lack of support form family and friends
Being too self critical
Thinking they're not good enough
Believing no one will ever publish their book
I've been through it and I know how hard it can be to overcome your fears and insecurities. As writers we are often our own harshest critics. In fact, I am going to go out on a limb and say I believe many writers suffer high levels of self-doubt because of what we have been through in our lives.
I might be wrong, but writing comes from the heart, from the soul, and a lot of the time those of use who ache to write, do so because of the ache in our hearts.
The struggles we've been through, the heartache, the pain, the disappointments, the love that broke us, that's what makes us writers.
Unfortunately it's also what causes self doubt.
But a lot of the time, when it comes to writing, our fears are completely unfounded.
If we want to make our dreams come true and show those who doubted us just how great we actually are, we have to be brave. We have to be courageous and daring.
I used to have the same fears and it held me back for a long time. Past mistakes and bad choices had me believing no matter what I did it would never be good enough - and you know what...
Writing a book with that belief actually made my worst fears come true.
I didn't try my best, I rushed it, I didn't give it the love and devotion it deserved. Why? Because no one was really going to care anyway, right? No one would read it...
The best thing that happened was when a bunch of reviewers showed just how much they did care by saying en mass that my book sucked. In fact, they all specifically said it was obvious no care had been put into developing my characters - and you know what? They were dead right.
The feeling I had when I read those reviews was like a knife in my heart because I knew I could do better - if I dared to actually believe in myself.
Easy to say, not so easy to do...
That's why I wrote down everything I did to build my confidence enough to go back, sit down, and actually try my best.
See, not really trying is great excuse to keep in your pocket just in case your book gets bad reviews. After all, if we try our best and it doesn't work out - where do we go from there?
I know it can be scary to open your heart and try your best, not knowing what the outcome might be. But if we don't, the outcome is already set. You will fail, just like I did, and believe me that is not a feeling you will enjoy.
If you are ever going to succeed, the first person to believe in you - has to be you.
I cannot stress that enough. Forget everyone else. Believe in yourself. Only you know what you are capable of when you pull out all the stops and do your very best.
