Comparison can kill your creativity. It can stop your writing in its tracks. When the comparison bug hits, you feel small, deflated, uncomfortable and uninspired.
Comparison makes you doubt your ability, your message and all that you originally felt driven and inspired by.
Comparison can make us play small. So let’s change that…
Lately I’ve been on a kind of meme creation craze. Basically, I started making these images with quotes a couple weeks ago and haven’t stopped.
I wasn’t sure what it was about putting text on images, whether to promote my books, my websites, or, quite honestly, simply for the sake of creating them. It’s addicting. And it’s kind of weird. But, I finally figured out the real reason…
One of the things I enjoy doing when publishing a new book is creating a few memes (easy to share pictures with famous or popular quotes on them) and share them via my blog and various social networks.
The memes I created for The Audacity to be a Writer are themed Awesome, Audacious and Inspiring Quotes. I hope you enjoy them.

In fact, on the days when I can’t string a few sentences together to save my life, I become convinced that the world is flat. In other words, I doubt the truth. I doubt I am a writer. On those days I give up, throw my pages in the air, and go sulk on the sofa while half watching a grandiose movie like, The Avengers.
Have you ever had days like that? I hope you haven’t had too many. If you have, I have some good news for you…
