Trust Your Inner Voice

One of the greatest obstacles for any writer to overcome is doubt. You know what I’m talking about. You hit the keyboard, whip out a few paragraphs, and then it hits. You ask yourself the inevitable questions: Is this any good? Is my writing clear? Should I scrap it all and start over?

Yeah, we’ve all been there.

On a subconscious level, you know how you feel about your work. You know if it tells the story you wanted to share. There is an unmistakable sense of rightness when you have been true to your inner voice. It’s that part of you that speaks so clearly in your head and makes you want to share it’s brilliance.

Know this and hold it’s wisdom close to your heart: You will never please everybody. So don’t try to. Not everyone else will see the point you’re trying to make. But they don’t need to.

Your words will always find their own appreciative audience. All you need to do is give them a stage to stand upon.
