Alright…remember when I said I was having some issues about my revisions on A Beautiful Mess (yep, Lacrimosa has finally been retitled). Well, they were big issues. Ones that tapped into some fear stuff (thus Tuesday’s post), as well as today’s topic.
See, I am lucky enough to be surrounded by the most amazing talent ever. Seriously. Authors (published and not), Writers (on the road to publication), and amazing readers. This collection of people have enabled me to grow in this business – a lot.
They’ve helped my find my voice, hone my craft, develop myself as an author.
And they have, unknowingly, forced me to deal with some serious inner demons.
Including the one involving…
We, as writers, rely on other people’s feedback and opinion of our work. And we should…we need a change of perspective periodically.
But, in listening to others, we forget to trust ourselves. Our voice. Our opinions.
And most importantly – We forget to TRUST that we CAN DO THIS!!!
Whether we are at the stage of crafting a novel, finding an agent, finding a publisher, or marketing our book…
WE MUST ALWAYS TRUST THAT WE CAN DO THIS!
Because you know what – if we are persistent in our pursuit of this dream…we will meet our goals! Sooner or later.
What do you think? Do you trust that you can do this???
And BTW…I just finished revisions at 11pm last night (at least for this round)! I guess it’s time to pull out one of the new ideas…Hmmm.
Have a great weekend everyone.
