Lori DeBoer on Self Doubt
Lori DeBoer is a very smart person.
What has changed in my years of writing is that I’ve come to regard the state of self-doubt as normal.
The trick to dispel doubts? Write anyway.
Pretend you’re really good at it.
More from Lori:
When you train your brain to write by making room in your day for doing so regularly, you dispel doubt’s strength. You become attuned to the process as much as the outcome. Cultivating creativity as a habit turns writing into a ritual that is comforting. You begin to write for yourself, not as a way to meet other people’s expectations, and you become more confident in your own set of experiences and ability to turn out a piece worth reading.
