Wisdom Of Writers: The Brave

Do you ever think about the act of writing as an act of bravery? Do you ever think that there are people that wish to write something and publish it, but they never do because of… reasons?

Stephen King, our coach for today, tries to give a pep talk to those who don’t start, but he also tries to encourage the ones that did start:

“You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”

PS: If you’re serious about writing and you want to have a long-lasting website that stands out of the crowd, check out one of the best SEO tools out there, Mangools.com, and get on the first page of search engines. You can find my full Mangools review here).

  1. Yes. There was a time when I was not brave enough because I was not confident about who I was or how I showed up. I think one finds one’s voice and expression when one totally accepts oneself and realizes your voice is worth being heard.

  2. Absolutely! I grew up writing essays putting my whole heart into them then became a frequent writer for my job. The pandemic has forced me to take a step back to see what’s truly important and that’s led me back to writing. The hardest thing was putting myself out there and feeling confident in my own tone & direction.

  3. I’ve been writing since I was a kid and I’ve only just recently had the confidence to upload my writing to my blog. It takes a lot of courage to open yourself up to the world, particularly an online world where everyone has an opinion. Some people are just mean for the sake of it and get away with it because it’s the internet. That is enough to really put anyone off. But on the flip side, even if you have one person that has faith in you and your ability, that can be all that is needed to take that first step 🙂

    • It does take a lot of courage to open yourself up to the world. I think that some people are mean because that’s the only way they can feel better about themselves. When someone is mean to a person, it’s because the former can feel superior by inventing something he/she thinks it is better at. That is not true and it is sad that they have to do things like that to feel better about themselves.
      Thank you very much for reading and for sharing your experience! ❤

  4. Good grief the first time I posted here on WordPress I wanted to throw up—literally. A visceral affect. By the third chapter I wanted to quit completely because seeing my personal story published online—disgusted me.

    Now, entering into my third year here on WP I am so grateful for all the kindness received from many wonderful bloggers. The friendship, feedback, encouragement, love—all of it!

    Now, I get excited about writing and sharing “the next post”.

    PS. I’ve learned to love mean people—seriously. They help me set my resolve if that makes sense. 💓

      • You are absolutely correct when you say to keep a writing schedule. A realistic-life-goes-on-schedule. Do I write every single day? No. I have plenty of chores that need to be done—and other interests as well.

        Finding balance is key. And—just like exercise—rest days are just as important for building strength and endurance.

        Yay two years I scheduled myself to developing a consistent practice that I can lovingly maintain long term and feel good about. My goal for the next two years is to to deepen this practice and see where I can go with my writing. I have a lot to learn!

        Have a great day, Lorene! 😊
