Sometimes it's easy to get stuck in your head when it comes to writing a book. One of the biggest challenges I hear from writers is fear: fear that their book will suck, no one will read it, or their peers will think it’s bad. This is a common fear that can keep us from writing our books or finishing because we want to please other people.
In reality, whether or not your books are good or bad is not up to you. Readers get to choose what is good or bad. You don't need to be better at writing or have a better idea than anyone else. Your book is meant to come out of you because you are its unique messenger.
On this week’s episode of “Authors Who Lead,” I talk about our biggest fears as authors and ways to help silence those fears and get motivated to write our books.
