Don’t Let Fear Keep You From Being A Writer

Some say it is good to be scared every now and then. It can push you towards your goals, and allows you to think from a different perspective. Now this doesn’t have to be jump-out-of your-skin kind of scared. It can be a personal vulnerability in your writing, such as being afraid to write something new or expressing a different opinion. However, in most cases that fear is holding you back. I encourage you to get out of your own head and do something that scares you! You only have one life to live, make sure you live it up to YOUR highest potential.
