Writer’s tend to be hard on themselves. We think our work will never make a dent in the universe or at least to our readers who wait to see what we have to say next.
There will always be that part of us who wants to hold us back. To criticize us at every turn and make sure we play it safe.
Call it fear, procrastination, insecurity, it could be one or all of those things. Whatever it may be, we tend to fight off our emotions only to intensify them further.
It’s better to stop and think why we feel the way we do about our writing.
Ask yourself, “where are these emotions coming from?” If you ask yourself the right question, sooner or later you will come up with the right answer.
It’s never easy to come to term with your own limitation. We all have them, especially writers who flirt with their limitations every time they write.
Coming to terms with your faults puts things in perspective on what you have do to get better.
Writing is a constant stream of improvement. With that being said, it shouldn’t discourage you from writing nor should it be a reason to sabotage your own work through self criticizing.
Changing your perception of the creative process and your work helps you realize that whatever you created is much better than whatever you wrote before, and that the next piece you write will be the next best thing.
Possibility is the ingredient necessary to motivate you to write your best work yet. Never stop writing. Never stop improving.
