Recently, I watched all six Rocky movies back to back (yes, even Rocky V). I somehow managed to skirt around those movies throughout my child- and young adulthood. Boxing movie? Something about some steps in Philly? Eh.
I’ve received many emails, letters, and even a few postcards, expressing the same thing: “I want to be a writer.”
Many of the senders go on to ask the inevitable question: “Am I good enough?”
I’m glad they asked. After all, if we’re honest, you and me, we’ve been there at some time or another, too, wondering the same question writers have been wondering for centuries…
These days everyone’s talking about writing your story. Not just any old story, but the story of your life, the road map that got you to where you are today. For most of us that’s a pretty daunting thought. I mean, why would anyone be interested in hearing our story anyway?
All Writers have experienced doubt. None of us are free from never being doubtful about our ability to create work that matters. If you’d like to share your story about dealing with Writer’s Doubt, and in the process help others realize they’re not alone, enter this contest!
I’ve been stuck lately. Way stuck. Lost in the Amazon jungle, stuck. And that’s stuck, my friends. If you need to use the word stuck five or six times within your first few sentences, then that’s, well, pretty stuck.
I hate to admit it, but I’ve been without a fresh idea to write about for months. But that’s all changed, because I’ve rediscovered a well kept secret.
