Weekend Edition – How to be a Confident Writer Plus Writing Tips and Good Reads

Live to Write - Write to Live

“Confident Writer” … it’s not a phrase you hear much, is it?

pin confidenceEarlier this week, I wrote and published an off-the-cuff confession about my habit of downplaying (and even demeaning) my writing in front of others. It’s not something I’m proud of, but I’m glad I chose to share my weakness, because it turns out that I’m not alone. Many of you apparently have the same knee-jerk reaction to innocent questions (and even compliments) about your writing.

Anyway, there were some wonderful comments on the post and the conversation got me thinking.

Sara Foley, for instance, pointed out that, “We have this funny thing that being a writer means a) being paid for writing b) a certain type of writing.”

And, bluecarpaintedgreen noted that, “Admitting you’re working on fiction pieces is a form of vulnerability, as it can hint at hopes and dreams; it’s personal.”

Never give up on your dreams

Cristian Mihai

523213_441480405922775_1158081202_nOne of my favorite quotes goes like this: “Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”

Ambrose Redmon said that.

Fear is an impulse, or like the tattoo on my arm says, “Fear is the mind killer.” Frank Herbert said that. In Dune. So you can’t stop being afraid, but you can fight fear, you can control it.

I don’t think I ever told you how I became a writer. Or if I did, it was long ago.

Quick update. We are in the 18 – 25 inch zone with the worst of the snowfall yet to come.

We have heat, electricity, coffee, hot food, and plenty of books – which basically makes New Hampshire not such a bad place to be right now.

Let’s keep it that way.

Write on my friends.

9:20 a.m. Southern NH - my poor son may not see his car again until the spring thaw. 9:20 a.m. Southern NH – my poor son may not see his car again until the spring thaw.

For those on the east coast, now is the time to truly hunker down and not travel those roads once the snow starts.  Please remember to check on the welfare of neighbors and the elderly.

We’ll see you all on the other side.
