25 Things Writers Worry About

Dear Writers & Creative People,

Did you notice all the “What If’s” and “Maybes” in there?

You’re not alone in your doubts, every creative person feels the same way at one point or another. I promise you’re going to be fine. You have so many stories to tell, creativity will flow out of your pores for the remainder of your life.

Please don’t worry about all those ‘what if’s’ – they’re just trying to hold you back. Keep reading, keep revising, tell the story only you can tell, and trust your gut. And most importantly, keep writing, writing, writing. With all that hard work, you’re bound to see results.

Go out there and do amazing things, I know you can.

Love,

Your future projects

“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” 

— Roald Dahl

I posted this quote on twitter yesterday afternoon, but some things are worth repeating. Growing up I adored everything Roald Dahl had to offer, from Matilda to the BFG, James & the Giant Peach, The Witches…Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, and…you get the point. Basically I think his books are awesomesauce.

His words touched me then, as they do now. Kinda like the way I hope this little excerpt inspires, or touches you today. At the very least, I hope it makes you smile. BTW, I hear they’re contagious, so spread ‘em around. Happy Wednesday! For all my writing friends a special #WW shout-out as well.

If you have a favorite author, or quote that you’d like to share, let me know in the comments or on twitter. I look forward to hearing what inspires you!
