This post is inspired by this one, called: Top 5 Beliefs of Fearless Writers: How Would Your Writing Change If You Were Fearless?

This is how I need to think about my writing, especially with regard to the non-fiction book that’s going to be published soon: Social Anxiety Revealed.

BELIEF 1: ‘I know that the right people will embrace my work at the right time.’

Not everyone will agree with everything I say. That’s not a problem.

BELIEF 2: ‘It is OK for people to see the true me; the essence that helps others connect to my message, my story, my characters.’

You’re going to see a lot of me in this book. I’ll live with that.

BELIEF 3: ‘I love and accept all aspects of myself.’

Yep.

BELIEF 4: ‘I choose to be the best possible version of me in all that I do and know that I have something of value to share.’

Readers will gain from reading the book. That’s why I wrote it.

BELIEF 5: ‘Success is who I am.’

This book will go far.

Thank you, Trina J. Stacey. I should live my life by those beliefs, but that’s harder to accomplish.

Do you live by those beliefs, or at least write by them?

Announcement

I was never good at keeping things in. I did it too much and ended up hiding my personality – even to myself. Even this blog has been suffering from that disease. So now, all is revealed (well, maybe not quite all) in my guest post on place and writing that the lovely Tania Hershman kindly agreed to host on her blog.

Now that it’s all out, I need to add to my About Me page. In the meantime, I will say this: even though I live where I live, I will never intentionally blog about politics. Many people do this, some exceptionally well. I have another mission.
