Today’s post was inspired by a member of our mailing list. She is taking our free e-course, 21 Days to Making More From Your Writing, and said fear was one of the things keeping her from taking her writing career to the next level. I’m really honored she shared such an honest response with us. And I know she is not alone. Hence yesterday and today’s blog posts.
Fear steals ambition and potential from a lot of us. As writers, it can feel like we see a whole lot more failure than success at times. Every time we put something out for public consumption that we’ve written, we risk readers tearing it apart, ridiculing us, and even laughing at us. And if we submit anything to an agent or publisher, there is a good chance we’ll get some rejection — that is, if the agent or publisher even bothers to respond at all.
