Writing-I Think I Can

by Marjorie J ~ . Filed under: How to Start Writing, Increase confidence in your writing skills.

When I was growing up we used to see a story about a little train and the words that I still remember are I Think I Can.  The story had to do with a little  engine going up a hill and struggling to get there but continuing to try.

If you think about it water boils at 212 degrees.  At 211 degrees it is still not at the boiling point.  The little bit of extra effort it takes to go the distance is something every writer or prospective writer needs to consider.  Am I willing to do what it takes?

On the other side of the coin, there are a lot of times when you might want to blame someone or something else and it is not hard to find excuses for not writing or for that matter doing any kind of project: cleaning the house, doing yard work etc.  You get the point.  Writers blocks come cleverly disguised as excuses and sometimes we just do not recognize what is happening.

If you think you are a victim, you will always be a victim. If you search for reasons to be depressed or to quit trying, you will find them. If can not is a part of your vocabulary RECONSIDER the results you might be getting and switch to I Can.

Do not justify your failure by belittling or blaming your failure on successful people. You will always find plenty of people willing to exploit you by confirming your victimhood,  justifying your depression, commending you for your failure to give it your all  and by helping you blame others for your failure.

Again, on the other side of the coin, if you think you have something of value to share that readers would like to read and come back for more of your content that is what you will be looking for and what will happen for you.  Readers will appear and come back for more of your content. That is such a cool result and one to savor.

Which way will you turn when you get to the fork in the road? Victim or Success.  I am encouraging you to go for the Success.
