Don’t worry about whether or not you suck…
No matter how good (or bad) you are, somebody’s gonna have something negative to say.
Don’t let that person be you!
Writers are a sensitive bunch. And we often hold ourselves to high, sometimes impossible, standards. We make all kinds of excuses as to why we can’t finish writing a book (or start writing one) but it often boils down to fear.
More specifically, fear that we secretly, or not so secretly, suck.
But guess what? It’s okay to suck. At least, for a little while.
Because we all sucked at some point. Some of us still do but are doing just fine with fans and finances. You don’t have to be the best straight out the gate. And I’d be willing to bet money that it’s damn near impossible to be the best because who’s measuring this stuff anyway?
Sales don’t determine who’s the best. Nor do fans. Or critics. Because there’s something for everybody in the bookstore.
You just have to have the passion to be the best. Give yourself some time, and a LOT of practice, and you’ll get better.
I promise you, you won’t suck forever.
Peace & Positive Vibes,
