Via: Daily Prompt – Doubt
When reading a truly spectacular story told with an awe-inspiring writing voice, I often become nervous. I wonder how will I ever measure up to the likes of these writers that I admire? I am not ashamed to say I am envious of all of my favorite authors’ storytelling capabilities (i.e. with the exception of the Goddess Jane Austen). But do I allow my moments of uncertainty stop me from journeying on the path to greatness? No.
Doubt is the death of dreams. Or rather, it has all the necessary elements to snuff the life out of your desires – if you allow it to. Instead, why not use that doubt to strive to improve? Challenge your fears and come out on top. Laugh at it. Quit dreaming in grayscale and infuse your subconscious with all the hues necessary to pursue a reality of your choosing. Defeat doubt. Extinguish it before it extinguishes you.
Become immortal by gifting the world a piece of yourself to cherish through eternity.

The way to overcome intimidation in the face of perceived towering writing prowess – – is to write with the next deeper level of honesty. Deeper truth shines. 🙂

Absolutely! I learned with time and sharing that readers can always see through when a writer is being honest and they can appreciate that.
Thank you for reading and your feedback! 🙂

Yes, I have learned that over time – that I get the most positive response from readers when I write with bone-deep honesty.
