Thank you all for sticking with me.
Being a writer is the only thing I’ve ever truly wanted in life, but it’s also the scariest thing I’ve ever considered doing. Because writing is putting pieces of you out there in the world.
Sometimes, it’s easy.
School papers and reports to leaders at work don’t tap into the soul. They require only the tips of your hair that get cut off at your next haircut.
Other writing, the stuff that requires more of you than you knew you had to give, that is hard. Really hard.
Give yourself permission to be afraid. And then be brave.
Because bravery is being scared and doing the thing anyway.
I take pride in being a Writing Fugleman for my fellow authors. Here is a tool to help you hone your craft.
