Day 81

What have you learned on your writer journey that you wish you had learned earlier?

To not be so self conscious. I want to say I USED to be super self conscious about my writing but to be honest, parts of me still are. It’s not as bad as it used to be. I’d have anxiety over people reading what I wrote because I was so worried about whether or not they’d like it. Now, I’ve experienced people not enjoying what I wrote but I’ve accepted that it doesn’t change who I am as a writer or my worth as an artist. Not everyone likes the same books. People disliking my writing doesn’t make me a bad writer, it just means they are not my target audience. I’d tell my past self to worry less about everyone’s opinion and more on the story. Be confident.
