One of the great things about writing

One of the great things about writing is that nobody is born a great writer. It is a process. You will write, rewrite, and rewrite again. Why put so much pressure on your self? Tell yourself this… “I don’t have to get it right the first time” say it to yourself over and over again.

As writers we work with the most treacherous building blocks and it takes time to make sure that everything is just right. Writing is nerve racking, and emotionally trying. You are a lone solider and you will not always get the praise you deserve. Your reader doesn’t know the sweat and tears that went into preparing your sentences, characters, and plot. That is why as a writer it’s ok to “toot your own horn,” praise yourself! No one else could of thought of those ingenious sentences. You are doing what many people fear; you are exposing yourself and for that you deserve credit and even if your words only touch one person, you have done what you set out to do.
