Why are you reading this?! I said I’m not a good writer, blogger, typer, whatever you want to call it. You don’t listen! Well… I guess if you’re going to read this I may as well have a point to my story….
I’m an “author,” I wrote essay after essay in college, I blog, but when I read other books and blogs spanning across the internet I see what a GOOD writer is. I look back at my work and see poor sentence structure, places where I could be more descriptive, and wonder what I was thinking when I wrote that piece. There are even typos in my book!!! (I’m working on it.)
I not right gud… You should’ve seen the first draft of my book. Needless to say, I pretty much had to start over.
Should I just stop writing though? I’ve definitely thought about it. BUT… I enjoy writing. I enjoy reflecting on what I’m thinking and putting it to paper.
My point is:
I don’t care what others think. Even though I don’t see myself as being good at something, it doesn’t stop me from doing it.
As I keep writing I get better though. Maybe one day I can put myself on the same pedestal as famous authors out there, or maybe not. Either way, when I take into consideration of what I’ve done already, I see it as a success. My book and my mission to help others wouldn’t exist if I didn’t have this mindset.
What do you love to do but you don’t because you may not be as good as others?
