What will people think? I’m not a good writer, never got A’s in English and I’m constantly making mistakes.
Writing is hard work.
There’s no magic pixie dust that settles on the author’s desk, signalling a period of inspiration.
Hang on there! Are you saying there’s no such thing as talent?
Not at all. But I am saying that every writer makes mistakes, may have bad grammar, and writes multiple drafts before their work is ready for publication. Don’t let fear of failure or criticism, stop you from pursuing your dreams.
You can start small by sharing your writing with a close friend or teacher. When you feel more confident, consider sharing in your writing group or blogging.
