Are you Indecisive about What Matters Most to you as a Writer?
Many writers compare themselves endlessly to other writers. There is nothing worse than comparison, is there? How many of you don’t think you’re good enough, don’t measure up to others, and believe you’re mediocre as writers? The solution to these kinds of anxieties is to stop comparing and instead decide what matters to you as a writer.
Granted this can take some time. But it is well worth it. But in the meantime, you should try not to fret about it and create needless anxieties for yourself. Instead, you should just take your time to see what reveals itself to you. What is the rush after all? You don’t have to be in a hurry to discover what really makes you content as a writer, and what kind of writing you want to do.
To determine what really matters to you as a writer, start by asking yourself the following questions.
• What do you enjoy to write?
• Do you identify as a writer and tell your family and friends that you’re serious about your writing?
• Do you take the time to really determine what you like to write about without constantly comparing yourself to others?
If you are struggling to answer any of the above questions, you are probably an indecisive writer. This can cause a lot of undue anxiety for you. And this anxiety can negatively impact your productivity and morale as a writer. So, isn’t it time to become an authentic writer who won’t be swayed by others. Today, sit down and determine what YOU want as a writer.
Do you have the courage to decide what your writing career will be like without anxieties?
