Remind Yourself of These Things Every Time You Sit Down to Write

By +EdieMelson  @EdieMelson

So often writers struggle more against the head-game part of the journey than any other. Today I’d like to share a list of things to help. So remind yourself of these things every time you sit down to write. 

You're welcome to use/share this graphic online, just be sure to link back to this site.
These are the things I hold onto when the doubts creep in. What would you add to the list?

Don’t forget to join the conversation!
Blessings,
Edie

  4. I've always said talent is a gift from God...with some assembly required. :) That assembly is the learning part we have to do to hone that gift, stretching it, and polishing it.

  5. LOVE number 10. The times I've failed or been rejected -- along with constructive suggestions -- are absolutely the times I've learned the most. When you know something is missing the mark, you keep working and polishing until it hits.

  10. Good reminders, Number 6 hit me. sometimes it is more comfortable to stay where you are and not take the risk to try new things. STRETCH was my word last year - time to revisit it again.
