Yes it is that time of year again! Camp Nano Wri Mo is here! Are you participating this month? If so, what are you writing about?
Today I begin writing on my book Secret Anguish… Well, okay so I did start writing a little on it already, so I can’t count those words toward this month’s word goal, but I can start writing new content today that will count. I’m feeling confident about this book though I know fears always rise like “Is this good enough?” “Is this in the right order?” “Am I REALLY sure about this?” “Did I do enough research?” ect. Do you have these kinds of thoughts? If you do, what do you do to get past them and to writing?
I find I have to do a bit of positive self-talk to get through those questions and then put those thoughts behind me and move forward. Fear and doubt can so often stop us from doing what we are meant to do, writing included! I have not published a new book in years but it is because fear, doubt and having lost sight of the value and significance writing can have. But today I make a new commitment and that is to focus on my writing and break through all fear and doubts. If I don’t do this now, I never will. With God’s guidance and strength I can do this and I will. I will not give up!
So without further ado I’m off to start up Scrivener and get writing!
I would love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to comment or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a great day!
