Nothing to fear...but fear itself

We are our own worst critics. It takes a lot to get past that in all facets of life, not just writing. I don't know what did it for me. I just started to think 'I'm awesome and I

will be the first person to tell you that.' It might make me sound arrogant but I don't care. I'm very confident in my abilities but I also recognize I have more to learn. About all kinds of things!

I think that's the key. Recognizing what you’re good at so you can develop that talent or cultivating something new. Like ... I love to sing. I'm pretty good but my stage fright has always held me back. Fear of rejection and all that. It's easier to write because I can hide behind the words. But with singing or acting or what have you, there's no place to hide. It's all you, all out. Yikes. So I sing in the shower and in the car and save the daring for my books. Does that make the pen mightier than the microphone? You tell me.
