Be Brave

Write-Bravely_2560-x-1600_1920x1200

I still find it difficult to write something that other people will read.

Writing is very personal and it’s a complicated form of expression. I have never written very openly, I was always the last person to read out my written work in class. But I need to stop seeing it as a potentially terrifying scenario.

The creative and personal nature of writing can cause doubts, as well as the fear of being scorned or judged. But writers must learn to be brave in displaying their craft and be proud of their hard work.

Writing publically, whether in a blog or a book, is a form of empowerment and a task that builds your confidence. When shared with others, writing can be a tool to connect and express yourself creatively.

I may never be completely comfortable with sharing my work, but I can learn to be braver when I write.

  1. Wow. Powerful words. Thanks for sharing. Until today I was always too scared to see if i have what it takes to write. Today i started a blog, i am not sure anyone will read it or approve if they do. But like you said it is empowering and I am doing it for me not for approval. Keep on expressing yourself, you helped me today x

  2. Thank you both for your comments! It’s good to know I’m not the only one who struggles. I completely agree with you about writing for yourself and not for approval – otherwise you will lose the enjoyment writing brings. Good luck with your blog, I’m glad I was able to help!
