I want you to pause for a second, and take a deep breath. In… and.. out… There. Your brain is amazing, okay? It’s powering all you’ve got going on right now in your body. It's processing these words your looking at and translating them into something that makes sense. Your brain is amazing. I know you're not dumb, so your brain is crazy amazing.
You are trying to write a book and it’s hard. Of course you’re gonna feel stuck sometimes. And it’s okay to take a time out. It’s okay to feel sorry for yourself. It’s okay to have a good cry, binge out on your favorite snacks, and basically act like a pathetic mess. That does not make you a failure. You know what does? Giving up on your work.
So promise me something right now. However bad you feel about your writing in this moment, promise me you will try again tomorrow. Tomorrow’s a new day. Fresh start. Leave all your negativity behind.
You might be really mad at what you have in your brain right now, because you’re stuck. But that’s just because you know you’re better than this. You’re not stupid, you’re impatient. You just need to get yourself back to your best self, it’s the how of that that’s giving you trouble. But you’re already trying, aren’t you? You went on the internet to find something that would give you boost.
You have something no one else in the world has. No one else has your voice and experiences. No one else has lived in your brain. What you have to say is important, and someone out there needs to read your book.
